Due to the controversy involving the statement of Celine Pialago, it has reached the Palace and Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a televised Palace press briefing on Monday that it was the personal opinion of Pialago.
He also stated that it was not related to MMDA in any way.
"Tingin ko po personal na opinion niya iyan. Hindi naman po iyan related sa MMDA iyang issue na iyan. Hayaan po natin na magkaroon ng personal na opinion si spokesperson Pialago," said Roque.
The statement in controversy was the one where Pialago stated that the supporters are turning the grief of political detainee Reina Mae Nasino as a "drama serye sa hapon."
Here is her full statement:
"Happy Sunday everyone! Walang kinalaman sa traffic pero sa tingin ko kailangan kong gamitin ang boses ko bilang isang Pilipino sa usapin na ito. Hindi lahat ng inang nakakulong ay nakapunta sa libing ng kanyang anak. Kaya yung mga sumisimpatya kay Reina Mae Nasino, pag aralan niyo mabuti ang dahilan bakit siya nakulong at kilalanin niyong mabuti kung sino siya sa lipunan. Masyado ninyong ginagawang pang drama serye sa hapon ang paghihinagpis niya. Tigilan niyo!"
