Representatives of Bayan Muna have jointly filed a resolution calling for a congressional investigation on the death of Darren Peñaredondo after he allegedly did 300 body pumping exercises as punishment for violating curfew.

“It is imperative for members of Congress, as representatives of our people to defend the rights of our people and check on excesses and violations committed against them especially in this time of crisis,” House Resolution 1697 read.

The resolution states that complaints against police abuse over quarantine violations are not new.

Peñaredondo reportedly went out to buy mineral water but was arrested by village watchmen of Brgy. Tejero in General Trias, Cavite.

Reichelyn Balce said her live-in partner Peñaredondo was brought to the police station along with other violators. They were brought to the town plaza where they were allegedly ordered to do almost 300 rounds of body pumping. Peñaredondo went home barely able to walk.

He later suffered seizure and was rushed to the hospital were he eventually died.

“Although his death was ruled to be due to a stroke caused by hypertension, physical activities may have been a factor and an underlying condition may have also triggered the stroke according to medical professionals,” the resolution further read.

The resolution also cited a quarantine violator who was locked inside a dog cage in Laguna and a man in Bulacan who was shot for allegedly avoiding a police checkpoint.
