MANILA, Philippines – Nasa kamay na ng mga otoridad ang mga nag-abandona sa isang senior citizen sa ilalim ng isang tulay sa Maynila.

Ayon sa Manila Police District Special Mayor’s Reaction Team (MPD-SMaRT), nahuli ngayong Biyernes si Ephraim Tan Yap, 51, pagkatapos ng isinagawa nilang operasyon.

Ayon kay SMaRT Chief Rosalino Ibay Jr., si Yap ay pamangkin ng matandang babae na kinilalang si Fulgencia Tan na kamakailan ay natagpuang nag-iisa at nakahiga sa ilalim ng McArthur Bridge.

“Nalaman natin na ang victim ay isang person with disability (PWD) at senior citizen. We conducted a follow-up operation na nagresulta sa pagkaka-aresto ng tatlong malefactor natin,” ani Ibay.

Sa pagharap kay Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, sinabi ni Yap na tatlong linggong na-confine ang matanda sa isang ospital at napunta sa kanya ang responsibilidad sa pag-aalaga rito nang mamatay ang asawa nito.

Ngunit sa halip na alagaan, lumapit umano siya sa isa pang suspek na si Emerita Decilio upang magpatulong na dalhin ang matanda sa isang charity group.

Inabutan niya umano si Decilio ng perang nagkakahalaga ng P1,500 para ipambili ng pangangailangan ng kanyang tiyahin.

“Lumapit po ako kay Emie, pagtapos po noon pumunta kaming barangay para sa certication na inaabandona ko na ang auntie ko. Kaya humingi po ako ng tulong para maipadala siya sa mga center,” ang wika ni Yap.

Inamin naman ni Decilio na inabandona niya ang matanda matapos umano silang tanggihan ng nilapitang grupo.

“Mayroon na po akong certificate sa barangay na si Mrs. Tan ay abandoned kaya kailangan tanggapin ng Missionary of Charity kasi abandoned na,” paliwanag ni Decilio.

“Pero wala pong tumanggap sa’min, kaya desperado na po ako. Aaminin ko po iniwan ko po,” dagdag pa niya.

Ayon kay Ibay, mahaharap ang mga suspek sa kasong paglabag sa Article 275 ng Revised Penal Code o ‘Abandonment of Persons in Danger and Abandonment of One’s own Victim.’

Kabilang din sa mga sasampahan ng kaso ang drayber ng tricycle na inarkila ni Decilio na si Rogelio Espino.

MANILA, Philippines—The Manila Local Government Unit (LGU) has begun the distribution of the fourth tranche of food box assistance under the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Food Security Program (FSP).

The distribution, through the joint efforts of the city’s Department of Public Services, Department of Engineering and Public Works, and the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau, began on May 8.

The target beneficiaries are about 700,000 families living in Manila. As of May 9 at 5:00 p.m., 139,000 food boxes have already been distributed to 122 barangays in District 1.

Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso said the program aims to ease the public’s economic burden amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ito ay iyong pinasa naming batas, sa tulong ni Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna at mga konsehal noong Disyembre, upang ibsan ang inyong mga tustusin buwan-buwan at para lumaki naman ang inyong savings. Dahil sa epekto ng inflation or hirap ng buhay ng tao, nagmamahal ang produkto, hindi naman tumataas ang sweldo (This is the law we enacted with the help of Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna and the councilors in December to ease the monthly expenses and for families to increase their savings. Due to inflation or life’s difficulties, price of commodities increase but the salary is still the same),” he said.

Around P3-billion have already been allocated since the implementation of the FSP in February, wherein three kilos of rice, 16 pieces of canned goods, and eight sachets of coffee will be packed and distributed to Manila residents. The program will continue until July this year. AAC
