Former senator Jinggoy Estrada was brought to a police station in San Juan on Sunday for allegedly violating the government's guidelines on enhanced community quarantine.

San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora said Estrada was arrested for going around the city's barangays even though the former senator was not authorized to do so.

"Sapagkat itong si dating Senador Jinggoy Estrada ay ilang araw na pong nag-iikot dito sa lungsod ng San Juan na walang authority," Zamora said in an interview on TV Patrol.

(Because former senator Jinggoy Estrada has been going around San City for several days without authority.)

Zamora said Estrada's relief efforts were drawing crowds in violation of the guidelines on physical distancing.

"Nag-iikot, parating maraming tao, walang social distancing."

(He's going around, there's always a crowd, there's no social distancing.)

The mayor also said Estrada's camp did not coordinate with the local government and did not secure a certificate for their relief operations.

"Kung gusto niyang tumulong sa ating mga mamamayan, ayon sa DILG [Departmenf of Interior and Local Government], kailangang kumuha ng certification sa local government," Zamora said.

(If he wants to help our citizens, according to the DILG, he needs to get certification from the local government.)

ESTRADA RELEASED AFTER BEING 'INVITED'

Estrada was released by the police at around 8 p.m. The former senator said the police did not file any charges against him and just gave him a warning.

In an interview, Estrada said he was "invited to the police station" for allegedly violating quarantine protocols, specifically, physical distancing while distributing relief goods.

He also denied allegations he was giving away money along with the relief goods.

"At any rate, unfortunately, this is all about politics. I think Mayor Zamora already held an interview, gave an interview in various networks, and allegedly he told the media, I was distributing bangus along with money. I deny. Wala po akong perang ibinibigay. Sinasabi niya mayroon akong perang ipinamimigay (I am not giving away money. He said I am distributing money)," Estrada said.

"Assuming, assuming totoo ang sinasabi niya (what he is saying is true), I think there's nothing wrong [with that]. People are hungry, people have no work. He should understand that," he added.

The former senator earlier accused Zamora of blocking a mobile market that sold goods at half the price, which was an initiative of his daughter Janella.

Janella was defeated in the last elections by Zamora.

Videos of Estrada being accosted by police have been posted on social media.

The video shows the former senator boarding a police vehicle at around 4 p.m. in Brgy. Salapan, San Juan City.

Bayan Patroller Fred Lozano, who lives in Brgy. Salapan, said Estrada was handing out fish to residents when police arrived and ordered him to stop.

A video shot by Lozano showed a crowd had gathered in the area.

    3. 12:45 "Yung mga hindi bumoto e manigas sa gutom!"

      So you're saying n if hindi nmin sya binoto, wla kming makukuha tulong from him??? Ay ang kapal nman ng mukha nyo. Baka nakakalimutan nyo n politician/public servant ang TRABAHO nila. Binabayaran sila ng taong bayan through the taxes that they deduct from our salary and to the things that we buy.

      So RESPONSIBILIDAD nila n tumulong at pa-unladin ang nasasakupan nila which the Estrada FAILED TO DO

    1. Hindi na-observe ang social distancing. Nagkagulo ang mga tao at nabale wala ang purpose ng ECQ. Wala ring certification. So kailangan talagang icoordinate with LGU para nasa ayos ang pagtulong.

      Delete
    2. 5:20 ex senator sya. Walang masama sa ginawa nya problem lang hindi marunong sumunod sa rules. Sinabi na ng guidelines makipag coordinate sa munisipyo or lgu pero wala eh gusto magpabango para sa election.

      Delete
    3. Hindi naman ang pagtulong ang kinikwestyon but the way he is doing it. Pwede naman siya tumulong na hindi siya ang pumunta. It is obvious na his presence is causing people to forget social distancing. It endangers them. And of course kailangan talaga na siya pumunta means it is first of all for show. Hindi ngayon panahon ng kampanya. You might want to say it is the people's right to defy rules kasi buhay nila but that is not so. By endangering themselves they also endanger everyone else na makakasalamuha nila. Sorry pero hindi excuse ang gutom para hindi gawin ng maayos anumang tulong na gusto niya ibigay.

  19. The estradas are clearly defying the LGU of San Juan. Though natulong sila.
    Paulit ulit na violators.
    Well bad publicity is still publicity nga naman
