Makati Mayor Abby Binay isn’t keen on declaring Gwyneth Anne Chua a persona non grata despite infecting about a dozen people with COVID-19 because of her quarantine breach.

In an interview on ANC’s “Headstart” on Tuesday, January 4, Binay said Chua will be answerable for her actions.

“Hindi ba petty?” the mayor replied when asked about a proposal to declare Chua a persona non grata.

“And besides you just gonna make her more popular… The level of persona non grata should be for someone who really deserves it,” Binay added.

The mayor instead advised individuals and business establishments who were affected by Chua’s quarantine breach to sue her for damages.

Chua is facing criminal charges for skipping quarantine after returning from a trip to the United States. She left the Berjaya Hotel in Makati before receiving the result of her RT-PCR test, which showed she was positive for COVID-19.
