The Ang Probinsyano party-list has released an official statement regarding the viral video of Rep. Alfred de los Santos punching a restaurant employee.
KAMI learned that the party vowed to conduct an investigation over the incident.
“We will not hesitate to suspend or even remove Congressman Delos Santos if we establish that this was an unprovoked attack,” it read in the statement.
“Just like everyone else, the party is concerned and disappointed with what happened,” it added.
As reported by the CNN Philippines, Ang Probinsyano party-list spokesman Joco Sabio said that Delos Santos will still be given the right to due process.
"He is not the entire representation of the Ang Probinsyano Partylist. His actions and his decisions are his own and should not reflect on Ang Probinsyano as a party and as an organization,” Sabio said.
Here is the copy of the police blotter that victim Christian Ecleo filed against Delos Santos.
As previously reported by KAMI, a CCTV footage went viral on social media showing that Delos Santos punched the restaurant employee. However, the lawmaker has yet to comment on the controversy.
Ang Probinsyano party-list won in the May 2019 polls. It also secured two seats in the House of Representatives.
