QC unit under fire for ‘excessive force’ on fish vendor not wearing face mask

By: Cathrine Gonzales -INQUIRER.net
April 29, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — A labor group on Wednesday called on the Oplan Task Force Disiplina of Quezon City to issue a public apology for beating and dragging a fish vendor who failed to wear a face mask and bring a quarantine pass while selling outdoors.

Josua Mata, Secretary General of the Sentro ng mga Nagkakaisa at Progresibong Manggagawa (Sentro), said the group “denounces in the strongest possible way” the “atrocious behavior” of the local officers of the task force.

“We also demand that the Oplan Task Force Disiplina issue a public apology to Michael Rubuia and foot the bill for all his medical expenses,” he said in a statement.

He was referring to the incident on Monday concerning fish vendor Michael Rubuia whom authorities apprehended along Panay Avenue in Quezon City for not wearing a face mask.

A video of the incident was shared on social media, showing local authorities dragging Rubuia towards an L300 van while another man held a wooden stick and kept hitting him.

To prevent more “abuses,” Mata then called on all local government units to train their security officers on how to properly handle quarantine violations.

The Quezon City government said it has begun a “full-blown investigation” into the incident.

Earlier, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Archie Gamboa said that violators of the enhanced community quarantine would face immediate arrest and inquest proceedings instead of being warned.

MANILA, Philippines — A member of the Quezon City task force implementing lockdown measures has been suspended after he was caught on video beating up a fish vendor with a yantok or rattan stick and dragging him to the ground after allegedly resisting arrest for violating guidelines of the enhanced community quarantine.

Joel Laurel was suspended for 60 days pending investigation of the incident by the city’s legal office, Ranulfo Ludovica, who heads Task Force Disiplina, said yesterday.

Ludovica said Laurel went out of bounds when he struck Michael Rubuia several times with a stick along Panay Avenue in Barangay South Triangle on Sunday.

Laurel was seen on video reprimanding Rubuia for not wearing a face mask while selling fish.

Drug test

Rubuia has tested positive for drug use, Ludovica claimed.

“He was violent because he was under the influence of drugs,”Ludovica said.

He said they would file charges against Rubuia for violating Republic Act 11332 or the Bayanihan Act.

Ludovica also clarified that it was only Laurel who beat up the victim while the rest of the barangay enforcers only helped to restrain Rubuia.

Violence, abuses not tolerated

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has ordered an investigation of the incident, vowing to prosecute anyone found to have violated the law.

“The local government will never condone any acts of violence, abuses or violation of human rights regardless of justification, especially when committed by a city official,” city hall said.

“While the city government reiterates its resolve to fully enforce quarantine protocols, all its personnel and agents are reminded to conduct themselves with proper decorum and restraint and to observe compassion and tolerance, especially in these difficult times,” it added.

Malacañang welcomed the move of Belmonte to order a probe on the incident, according to presidential spokesman Harry Roque.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government will also look into the incident, DILG spokesman and Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya said. – With Emmanuel Tupas, Christina Mendez

MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya love team John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo’s recent social media conversation brought fans into a “kilig” frenzy.

On Instagram, John Lloyd commented on Bea’s post in 2019, which started the exchange of comments between the two.

Bea and John Lloyd’s Instagram conversation

“Huyyy @beaalonzo,” John Lloyd commented.

“@dumpsitegallery 2019 pa tong post ko ah, bakit nagbbrowse sa ig ko?” Bea replied.

The on-leave Kapamilya actor reasoned out that he just accidentally clicked the like button, saying: “Napindot lang.”

Bea replied “halata eh,” while John Lloyd asked if “bawal ba?”

Bea then commented, “hindi naman” followed by “ay seen na lang. ganyan ka.”

John Lloyd then commented, “tampo agad. Dm kita,” to end their conversation.

Fans of the love team also commented on the thread, saying: “sana sila na lang.”

John Lloyd and Bea are teaming up once again for a project set to be released this week.

The love team announced separately on their Instagram accounts that they will be performing a work of fiction.

“Over the next week, we will be performing a work of fiction on Instagram. It is a love story and it is about these times. Any resemblance to persons, living or dead, is intentional,” the post read.

They captioned the post as “unconfinedcinema” while tagging each other and director Antoinette Jadaone.

John Lloyd and Bea reunited last Valentine’s Day at an Art Fair Philippines event, when they did a live script reading of the film “That Thing Called Tadhana” with Antoinette, the movie’s director.

5 things Duterte got right

By: Richard Heydarian (Philippine Daily Inquirer)
April 28, 2020

Across the world, the impact of the pandemic that originated from China has been far from uniform. Many elements mediate the extent to which the COVID-19 virus affects a specific nation, so before pointing out what Philippine President Duterte got right, let me first lay out these important qualifiers. First, there is the element of geography, and likely climate, playing an important role.

In the European Union, where travel restrictions were close to nonexistent, Italy’s neighbors, including Belgium, were hit hard, despite having among the most sophisticated policy interventions.

Then there is the “super spreader” phenomenon, with Italy football team Atalanta’s return game against Spain’s Valencia likely contributing to, among other major events and factors, the massive spread of the plague to neighboring Spain. Moreover, as demographic experts at Oxford University have shown, high fatality rates in Italy were partly a function of the proportion of elderly, smoking men, as well as the high frequency of social interaction between the young and elderly.

As the crisis in global cities such as New York and, increasingly even Singapore, has shown, high-density megacities could be also particularly vulnerable. Nonetheless, comprehensive studies such as the multivariable survey by Hong-Kong-based Deep Knowledge Group show that so far the most successful policy responses have come from democracies such as Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Australia.

Interestingly, none of these “model nations” are led by populists. New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen, and Germany’s Angela Merkel are widely seen as among the most competent leaders amid the ongoing pandemic.

Practically all populists have overseen among the worst outbreaks in their regions, from Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro to Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the United States’ Donald Trump, who has overseen officially the world’s worst outbreak. The Philippines and Indonesia, both led by populists, have not fared well by regional standards.

The notable exception is Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, whose illiberal populism has been built on a toxic cocktail of xenophobia and border closures. This time, Orbán’s penchant for travel restrictions on foreigners may have worked in his country’s favor.

The common strain among practically all these populists is their far-too-long dismissiveness toward the crisis and, in the case of Bolsonaro, the outright denial and reckless firing of the country’s health minister. Up until the second week of March, President Duterte mocked anxieties over the pandemic with characteristic chutzpah: “Naniwala pala kayo!”

But as in life, politics also offers a chance for redemption. First of all, there has been an encouraging shift in the President’s language and policy toward the crisis. He has become frank about the true extent of the crisis, making it clear that unless we have reliable, mass-produced vaccine, there is no return to “normal”: “Ang COVID, hindi matatapos ‘yan. It will be here, it will stay until kingdom come pero kung may bakuna na, baka sakaling mauna tayo.”

Second, Mr. Duterte has shown the political will to extend a difficult and economically devastating lockdown in order to protect public health. This stands in stark contrast to Trump’s itch to restart the American economic engine.

Fourth, while Trump and Bolsonaro have been busy firing competent officials, Mr. Duterte has recruited competent and young technocrats to assist his ongoing efforts, such as Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles and new Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Chua.

And finally, the President, in a rare sign of national unity, has rightly shown due respect and appreciation for Vice President Leni Robredo, who has been an epitome of quiet dedication to frontliners and the country’s most vulnerable sectors in recent months. There is so much room for improvement, but there is also reason to hope.
