Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas has called out Capiz Gov. Nonoy Evan Contreras on the new border restrictions.
“Kon ano ginahimu nila sa aton, amo man ina himuon ta sa ila,” Treñas said.
Trenas was irked by the new protocol imposed by Contreras since yesterday, August 16 targetting Iloilo City residents with stricter border controls imposed under ECQ areas.
Iloilo City and Capiz Province do not share a common border.
President Rodrigo Duterte elevated Iloilo City to General Community Quarantine (GCQ) from August 16 to 31, 2020. The rest of Panay and Guimaras remain under modified GCQ.
Treñas bewailed that the requirements sought out by Contreras to those travelling from Iloilo City are not even mandated by the guidelines of the Regional Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on COVID-19.*
