Inanunsyo ni Former University of Makati law dean Rico Quicho na naghain na siya ng reklamo laban kay Senador Koko Pimentel sa pamamagitan ng kanyang social media.
Tinawag ng Makati Medical Center (MMC) si Sen. Pimentel na “reckless and irresponsible” dahil sa inilagay daw sa alanganin ang mga medical staff nito.
“I filed with the Department of Justice (DOJ) through electronic mail, a Letter-Complaint against Senator Koko Pimentel detailing the clear facts and circumstances that establish his direct violation of RA No. 11332 (the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Health Concern Act) and its implementing rules and other DOH (Department of Health) regulations,” he said.
“With this, I hope the DOJ will swiftly act and pursue legal actions against Senator Koko Pimentel. We trust that DOJ will be true to its commitment to the Filipino people to uphold the rule of law without fear or favor,” he added.
The lawyer noted that the complaint references the online change.org petition that gathered around 200,000 signatures.
“We are one with the Filipino people in condemning negligent and reckless acts which expose the public, especially our health workers to unnecessary risks,” Quicho said.
The Makati Medical Center (MMC) has denounced the March 24 visit of Pimentel who accompanied his then pregnant wife who already gave birth last week.
Prior his disclosure that he tested positive with the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Pimentel was supposed to be on self-quarantine at that time he was considered a person under monitoring (PUM)
