Parang si Gen. Sinas lang: Judge in birthday celebration told to explain
The Supreme Court has issued a show cause order to the presiding judge of Nabunturan, Compostela Valley, Regional Trial Court (RTC) and her staff for possible violations of quarantine guidelines when she celebrated her birthday.
Judge Cresenciana Dela Cruz of the Nabunturan Compostela Valley RTC, Branch 3 and her staff allegedly celebrated her birthday weeks ago by having a buffet treat in her chambers ignoring the strict guideline on social distancing.
The Court also directed the Office of the Court Administrator (OCA) to submit its report within 15 calendar days as to whether or not there were violations committed by Judge Cruz and her staff.
National Capital Region Police Office chief Debold Sinas recently hogged the headlines when he was accused of violating quarantine protocols following his birthday celebration despite the lockdown.
Sinas’ mañanita drew flak from netizens after photos were posted on the official Facebook page of NCRPO-Public Information Office, apparently showing that social distancing was not observed during the event.
He was also spotted on photos posted on social media mingling at the table while others lined up at the buffet meals.
Some of the photos on the NCRPO Public Information Office’s page were deleted.
