Drilon: Malacañang, DOJ should not allow unvaxxed PAO chief to report to work

‘Hindi ba sampal iyon sa gobyerno?’

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA — Senate Minority Leader Franklin M. Drilon urged Malacañang and the Department of Justice (DOJ) not to allow Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Acosta to report to work, saying that the PAO chief’s continued refusal to get vaccinated undermines the government’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

“Acosta is putting the life, health, and safety of her co-workers in danger and that should be dealt with accordingly and decisively,” Drilon said in a statement on Wednesday.

Drilon said the government will be accused of double standards if it allows Acosta to report to work while it restricts the movement of unvaxxed ordinary Filipinos.
