Vico Sotto suing 2 ‘fixers’ of vaccine slots in Pasig City

Mayor Vico Sotto has decided to file a complaint against the two arrested on charges of inserting people into the vaccine queue.

According to Sotto, last weekend, there was a report that the alleged fixers were allegedly inserting into the queue and making money from it.

He said he would not allow anyone to disturb and take advantage of the vaccination queue.

“‘Yung isa merong profiler namin mismo nagtatrabaho within the vaccination team, isinisingit niya talaga, binibigyan niya ng appointment, buti may nagsalita nga about dito,” Sotto said in an interview on the program “Sakto” on Tuesday morning.

“Definitely sasamphan natin ng kaso ‘yung dalawa dahil maling mali naman talaga eh nakikita natin ‘yung iba pumipila ng ilang oras, naghihintay ng ilang araw, ng ilang linggo para makakuha ng ng appointment tapos pagdating doon medyo marami ‘yung pila magpapasingit pa ‘tong mga ‘to tapos maniningil pa, o minsan talagang may schedule naman pero maniningl pa rin sila lolokohin nila ‘yung tao,” he added.

The mayor has left it to the legal office to determine the appropriate case against the two fixers.

Sotto is also tracking down other vaccine fixers.

“Alam ko hindi lang dalawa ‘yan, dalawa lang ‘yung may ebidensiya na kami. Naghahanap kami ng mga willing magsalita, naghahanap kami ng ebidensiya sa iba pang fixer,” said Sotto.

The Pasig Police Station warned the fixers and called on the public not to indulge those who commit illegal activity.

“Huwag po kayong mag-dwell sa mga ganitong klaseng mga tao kasi kayo naman po ay mabibigyan talaga ng pagkakataon na magkaraoon ng vaccine,” said Lt. Catherine Deligente, officer in charge of Pasig Police Station community affairs section.

The police will review their procedures and intensify their coordination with the local government to prevent a recurrence of such incidents.

About 13 million doses are also expected to arrive in , according to the National Task Force Against COVID-19.
