ANTIPOLO City, Rizal – All that the 54-year-old female resident of this component city wanted was to raise a little for her family after losing her job before Christmas, but how she tried to make both ends meet didn’t sit well with the city government had her arrested for allegedly presenting spurious documents in seeking financial assistance.
In a Facebook post, Antipolo City Mayor Jun Ynares said “Olive” who is reportedly a resident of Barangay dela Paz, went to the Mayor's Help Desk to ask for financial assistance.
When a city government employee started to inspect her documents which she claimed to have come from the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM), Olive became irritable and shouted at the employee, prompting the security and the police to apprehend the suspect.
The documents, according to the mayor, turned out to be fake for which Olive was charged with Unjust Vexation and Falsification of Public Documents.
"Lagi pong handang magbigay ng tulong ang ating tanggapan. Weekly ang ating pay out at libo-libong kababayan kada payout ang ating natutulungan. Sa dami ng mga beneficiaries weekly, sa Ynares Center na nga po natin ito ginagawa dahil kadalasan ay hindi na po tayo magkasya sa City Hall," Ynares said.
"Milyon-milyon din ang halagang lumalabas weekly kaya dapat talaga namin suriin nang mabuti ang mga dokumento at papeles na pinipresinta sa atin dahil ang perang lumalabas sa ating tanggapan ay hindi naman sa amin kundi pera ng taumbayan. Basta totoong mga nangangailangan, siguradong hindi namin po kayo tatalikuran o pababayaan," he added.
