Walang kadala-dala! Vico Sotto bares ECQ ‘ayuda’ modus
The Pasig police have arrested “fixers” who gamed the distribution of cash aid to poor residents to benefit from it even if they’re not qualified.
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto shared in a Facebook post the modus involving the “ayuda” or cash aid given to poor Filipinos.
“Magbibigay ang ‘fixer’ ng form sa mga tao. May mga nabigyan na taga ibang LGU (local government unit). Sa 4,000 piso na ayuda, 1,000 ang sa tao/recruit nila. Yung 3,000 ,paghahatian ng fixer at validator,” he said.
Sotto expressed dismay that there are people taking advantage of the pandemic to enrich themselves through illegal means.
“[D]i pa rin talaga maalis-alis sa utak ng ibang tao ang panlalamang sa kapwa,” he said.
Sotto said the police continue to investigate if there are more individuals involved in the modus.
