Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) spokesperson and Assistant Secretary Celine Pialago couldn’t understand why people are up in arms over the heavy police guard at the burial of political activist Reina Mae Nasino’s three-month-old baby.

Several netizens have sympathized with Nasino, who was allowed a short furlough by the court for the burial of her baby on October 16 at the Manila North Cemetery.

Nasino was handcuffed and in protective gear as she bid goodbye to her baby daughter River.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, October 18, Pialago said: “Happy Sunday everyone! Walang kinalaman sa traffic pero sa tingin ko kailangan kong gamitin ang boses ko bilang isang Pilipino sa usapin na ito.”

“Hindi lahat ng inang nakakulong ay nakapunta sa libing ng kanyang anak. Kaya yung mga sumisimpatya kay Reina Mae lNasino, pag aralan niyo mabuti ang dahilan bakit siya nakulong at kilalanin niyong w kung sino siya sa lipunan,” Pialago added.

The MMDA official’s post has gone viral. It was deleted later in the day but Pialago claimed it was “accidentally deleted by one of her Facebook page’s supposed 70 administrators.

She reposted a screenshot of her original post, which has garnered over a thousand comments and hundreds of shares.
