Expat's ‘Arrogance has no place in our country:’- Lacson

Expat's ‘Arrogance has no place in our country:’- Lacson

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson does not want this to go unnoticed by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).

Lacson is referring to the incident which happened in a private village in Makati city where an ‘arrogant’ foreign national who threw curses to a police officer enforcing the quarantine rules.

“The Bureau of Immigration may have to look into the matter. If a deportation proceeding is in order, they should act swiftly and decisively,” Lacson said in a statement.

“Arrogance has no place in our country – especially so in a situation where either all of us win, or all of us lose to the COVID-19 threat,” he added

The police officer attempted to arrest Mr. Javier Salvador Parra in front of his yard in a private subdivision in Makati city after a heated argument over the violation of the prevailing quarantine rules of the foreign national’s housemaid.

The police officer reportedly wanted to fine Parra’s house helper P1,000 for watering the plants without wearing a face mask.

Under Makati City Ordinance No. 2020-089, anyone not wearing a face mask in public will be P1,000 for a first offense, P3,000 for a second offense, and P5,000 and/or imprisonment of six months for a third offense.

A heated arguement between Parra and the police officer later followed.

A video recorded by Parra’s wife showed the police officer tackling Parra in the ground in order to arrest him, however the foreigner went inside his house to evade arrest.

“During these trying times, the Philippine National Police (PNP) has the unenviable task of implementing an Enhanced Community Quarantine, without fear or favor. For the most part, our policemen deserve kudos for doing their jobs,” Lacson, a former PNP chief, went on.

“Such is the case of police officers who arrested a foreigner in Makati City, after he challenged their authority with an arrogant and demeaning behavior,” he added.
