Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto was seen confronting a businessman over some building permit. The video showed the businessman arguing with Mayor Vico to prove his point. Mayor Vico was asking the businessman to remove the heavy equipment blocking road passage.
The businessman asked Mayor Vico the following: “Alam mo ba kung ano’ng nangyari dito?”
“o, alam ko. Sinubukan mong mag-demolish nang may tao sa loob ng bahay.” said the mayor.
“Drug den ‘yang dinemolish ko!” said the businessman. Mayor Sotto then asked: “Bakit hindi ka tumawag ng pulis? May karapatan ka bang mag-demolish? May court order ka ba? Wala.”
On Twitter, Mayor Vico clarified that the real issue is really about:
“Dami nang nag comment tungkol dito (some out of context)
Marami siyang violation, pero ang MAIN ISSUE rito:
Ilang beses na nilang sinubukan magpatayo ng building na WALANG BUILDING PERMIT.
Tapos hinarangan ng truck at crane nila ang PUBLIC ROAD. Nakasira pa sila ng humps.”
Criminal and civil cases are being prepared.
