A 23-year old Chinese woman who has been staying in the Philippines since five years ago, named Jiale Zhang gets a******* by the Mandaluyong Police for disrespecting and assaulting Police Officer 1 William Cristobal. She allegedly threw her taho snack at the police officer who stopped her from entering the MRT-3 Boni Serrano Station.
Metro Manila police director Guillermo Eleazar reiterated his appeal to the public to fully cooperate with authorities in connection with the “Liquid Ban” and the “No Food, No Drinks” policy at the MRT and LRT stations being strictly enforced following the recent bombings in Mindanao.
Investigation showed that the Chinese national was about to enter the station’s bag inspection area when the duty security guard checked her belongings and discovered a cup of taho inside a paper bag. The guard and the police officer explained the policy not to bring any form of liquid, food or drinks inside the train but the foreigner insisted to bring in her snack.
At the height of argument, Zhang threw the taho at the police officer’s uniform.
The NCRPO Chief went to the Police Community Precinct 5 and gave a sermon to the Chinese woman. “Do you know that we are just implementing this kind of policies for your protection?”
The Chinese national apologized for what she had done to the police officer.
