0 517

It was his staff’s doing, but he has apologized for it.

Valenzuela Rep. Weslie Gatchalian owned up to a brewing issue against him after his car was caught parked at a slot assigned for persons with disabilities (PWD) in Quezon City.

The politiko issued a letter of apology and posted it online, saying that he has already suspended his staff member for the misdeed. He clarified too that he was not driving the car when it happened.

“While it was not me who was driving the vehicle, I believe it was my duty to ensure that my staff constantly acts in a matter that respects and is conscious of the rights of every person,” Gatchalian said.

“Please accept my deepest apology.”

He eventually earned praise for the swift response and accountability.
