Pimentel, in a post on Twitter, said the public could report any trading abuses to his office. The senator is the chair of the Senate committee on trade.

“We should not allow anybody to take advantage of the current difficult situation brought about by the Taal Volcano eruption by increasing the price of needed goods and materials (like face masks),” he tweeted.
