Jinggoy Estrada, former mayor of San Juan, was detained yesterday by the police for violating quarantine protocols while giving out free fish to poor citizens.

Aside from supposedly not observing social distancing and sanitary practices, Estrada was also detained for not having a permit to donate in public.

Estrada then accused San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora of singling him out for being a political rival. Zamora ended the Estradas’ decades-long rule over the city last year.

KAMI learned that Zamora has released a statement to counter Estrada’s accusation against him.

According to Zamora, his main concern is to stop the spread of COVID-19 and not to single him out for being rivals in politics.

The San Juan Mayor pointed out that he immediately granted a permit to Estrada’s daughter, Janella Ejercito Estrada, to proceed with her Rolling Botika project just a day after she requested the permit.

Zamora asked Estrada why he cannot request for a permit like his daughter did, which is mandated by the DILG.

“Despite the malicious allegations being thrown at me now, I would like to assure our beloved San Juanenos that no amount of politics will distract me from my single focus—which is to flatten the curve [of infections] in San Juan…
“For several days now, he has been conducting distribution of bangus in different barangays in San Juan in an unsanitary manner with the fish not being put in any plastic or wrapper possibly adding to the spread of the virus…
“I am saddened by the fact that the former senator is not respecting the rule of law. Being a former lawmaker himself, he is expected to be the first to abide by the laws of our country…
“We are focusing on eradicating COVID-19 in San Juan, not on politics. That is why I immediately approved on April 30, 2020 the permit requested by Ms. Janella Ejercito Estrada on April 29, 2020 for a Rolling Botika for San Juaneños because it will benefit our constituents and it is in compliance with the DILG directive for organizations who wish to conduct relief operations to apply for a certification from the LGU,” Zamora stated.
