Ibang pasabog! Vico Sotto sends violation tickets to fancy Pasig neighborhood for lighting fireworks on New Year


No one is above the law in Pasig City – not even the rich and powerful.

Mayor Vico Sotto delivered on his promise to run after residents who lit up firecrackers and other pyrotechnics in their homes on New Year’s Eve, by virtue of a Metro Manila Council resolution and a local ordinance banning them.

He showed the receipts a week later.

“As promised, tineketan namin yung mga taga-exclusive subdivision na nagpaputok nung #NewYear. 7 households within Valle Verde reported to us were ticketed and fined 5,000 pesos each,” he reported on Twitter. “Mukhang nagulat sila pero nag-cooperate naman lahat.”
