The mayor lamented that when he assumed the city’s top post in July, many violators of the ban were able to evade apprehension for they have “protectors.”

“Pang-aabuso ito sa puwesto na nagdadagdag pa ng perwisyo sa mga mananakay (This is an abuse to power that adds to the burden of the commuters),” Sotto noted.
