Law applies to all: Cayetano appeals to politikos, the ‘elite’ to follow quarantine rules
Everyone is encouraged to follow the country’s quarantine rules regardless of power and economic status.
House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano reminded the country’s politikos and the elite about their responsibility to follow health protocols like everyone else. He said people should learn to adapt to rules implemented by the government for public safety and health.
“Hindi magbabago ang community kung hindi tayo magbabago…’Yung pag-change personal behavior at behavior natin lahat of course kasama ang mga politiko dito, kasama dito ang tinatagurian na elite sa society na dapat ang batas sa isa ay batas sa lahat,” Cayetano said in Facebook video posted on May 29.
“I know sometimes it can be emotional, sometimes may mga pagdadahilan etc. but the point I am making is if we all change our behavior, nagbabago ‘yung community di ba?” he said.
Cayetano made the comment after thanking the “creative” minds behind the innovative equipment and supplies needed for hte coronavirus response. He alongside his wife Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano presented the hands-free sanitizer dispenser during the Facebook video.
“Sa ngayon, Prayers!, social distancing, face mask, at constant hand washing pa din ang pinaka epektibong panlaban sa COVID-19. Salamat sa mga nag isip nitong design, at sa mga gumawa ng mga sa hands-free sanitizer dispensers,” he said.
