Valenzuela City Rep. Wes Gatchalian has suspended his driver for parking his vehicle in front of a lane reserved for persons with disability (PWD).

The photo of Gatchalian’s vehicle blocking the PWD lane in front of a restaurant along Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City has gone viral.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, the lawmaker clarified that he was not the one behind the wheel when the photo was taken.

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

“Nothing less should be expected of my office,” Gatchalian added.
