Manila, Philippines – Iginiit ni Public Attorneys Office (PAO) chief Persida Acosta na ‘unconstitutional’ at ‘discriminatory’ ang polisiyang ‘no vax, no ride’ sa mga pasahero.

“I think the policy of the LGUs is highly unconstitutional and against the law,” ani Acosta sa ANC.

Nakasaad aniya sa Republic Act 11525 na ang vaccine cards “shall not be considered an additional mandatory requirement for educational, employment, and other similar government transaction purposes.”

“And yet they are circumventing. Lalabag nila ‘yung batas indirectly para mapiitan kang magpabakuna. You need magpabakuna para pasakayin ka. Ano ‘yun pinupwersa,” dagdag pa ni Acosta.

Mariin naman itong nanindigan na ang naturang polisiya ay ‘unconstitutional.’

“That’s unconstitutional because the Bill of Rights, Section 1 states that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, and property without due process of law,” paliwanag pa nito.

“You know you are discriminating against the unvaccinated and then you are just favoring the vaccinated. You let them ride and then the unvaccinated anong gagawin, maglalakad?”  RNT/FGDC
