The permit to operate of the hotel in Makati where Christine Dacera was found lifeless has been revoked by the Department of Tourism (DOT).
KAMI learned that the City Garden Grand Hotel (CGGH) was accused of violating quarantine protocols when it allowed guests to spend their leisure time inside the facility.
The allegation was aired due to the tragic incident that took the life of the 23-year-old flight attendant after a New Year’s Eve party with friends and colleagues.
CNN Philippines shared a statement released by the DOT saying that the hotel did not indicate that its rooms were to be used by people who are undergoing quarantine.
“DOT-NCR considered other evidence which were not limited to the circumstances surrounding the incident on 31 December 2020...” the department said.
“The pieces of evidence showed that even prior to the incident and until now, the CGGH is marketing packages to accept leisure guests," it added.
ABS-CBN News also reported that the CGGH is suspended for 6 months.
Aside from the abovementioned consequences, Rappler published a report that said the facility is fined 10 thousand pesos for violation of quarantine protocols.
The case of Christine Dacera is still one of the much-talked-about topics on social media. The truth about the incident that killed the said lady has yet to be identified.
The City Garden Grand Hotel in Makati City earlier denied the accusation that it violated quarantine protocols. “There was no clear indication that these guests knew each other, or made the reservations with the intention of holding a party within the hotel premises," it said.
The program of Jessica Soho on GMA-7 also made an in-depth documentary about the incident that involved the Filipina flight attendant. The video quickly became viral online.
