- A video of barangay officials trying to arrest a number of individuals who are inside a home goes viral
- The officials were insisting that there is a curfew from 6 p.m.
- The woman in the video stated that they are still inside the house, hence, they could not be arrested for violating the curfew
- The barangay officials insisted that since the woman is not a resident of the house owned by her uncle, she is still violating rules because going to another person's house is also "bawal"
A video of several barangay officials trying to arrest a couple of individuals who are still inside a house has gone viral.
The barangay official was insisting that they were violating the curfew, but they were also saying that they are not committing any violation since they are inside their uncle's house.
The woman could be heard saying that one barangay official was even cursing at them.
"Curfew, wala naman po kami sa labas eh."
"Ako nga nakiusap kay kuya kung pwede tapos lang kumain, sabi ni kuya okay, tapos kayo," said the woman.
"Yung curfew natin alas sais..." stated a barangay official.
"Ayun nga po eh, pero dapat hindi po kayo nagmumura..."
"Ako, hindi ako taga-rito. Kung lalabas po ba ako, may masasakyan po ba ako. Kaya nga po eh, hindi po ako lalabas. Andito lang po kami."
"Dito po ako matutulog eh."
Another resident of the house then said:
"Pagkanakahubad, kukuwestiyunin niyo bawal nakahubad. Eh nasa loob ng bahay, bawal pa rin iyon?"
"Pagkanagmura kayo, okay lang po iyon?"
Somebody was saying, "pasensyahan na lang."
"Kayo po yung nag-ano nun eh, nananahimik kami dito oh."
One of the residents of the house tried to explain to the barangay officials.
"Tay, wala pong masama sa ginagawa niyo. Pero yung maninita ka dahil nakahubad, tama ba iyon?"
Another person inside the house said, "Sir, nasa house premises pa po kami, wala pa po kaming nilalabag na curfew... Alam naman po namin na 6 p.m. ang curfew, kaya po nag-stay kami dito. Since nasa house premises po kami, wala po kaming kasalanan, wala po kaming nilabag na curfew."
