LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines – Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan has personally issued a citation ticket against a city hall employee who violated quarantine protocols, specifically the proper wearing of a face mask.

Chan called the attention of Lucino Solon on Friday noon, March 5, 2021, after his picture has gone viral on social media. Solon is a member of the Barangay Mayor’s Office (BMO) core group.

Solon was seen taking pictures of a quarantine violator in Barangay Marigondon, while he himself was not properly wearing his face mask, during their operation yesterday, March 4, 2021.

But Solon explained that he only pulled down his face mask to answer a call on his cellular phone.

“Nya na-timingan lang gyud nga naay nanawag nako ba nga pa-reporton mi sa BMO Central. Nya, daghan man sakyanan nagsige ug bahas-bahas ba, wa kaayo ko kadungog, nagtuo ko sa akong face mask maong gius-os nako gamay,” Solon said.

He added that after that, he already forgot to put back his face mask in its proper place.

“Moangkon gyud to nga ako gyud tong sala. Wala naman nako mabalik ug saka, pero wala gyud to nako gitangtang gyud,” he added.

Chan, however, said that no one should be above the law and that Solon would have to face the consequences of his action.

“Lisod kaayo maulaw ta sa mga tawo ba nga kita maoy nanghingusog nga kita maoy implementor, unya kita ra po’y ni-violate. Lisod kaayo, palihog ayaw lang ni usba,” Chan said.

Quarantine violators can choose to pay the fine of P1,000 or do community service as their penalty.

But Chan wants Solon to do community service by ordering him to collect 5 kilograms of garbage tomorrow, March 6, 2021.  /rcg
