A Chinese woman was nabbed by the authorities for her disrespectful behavior to a police officer who informed her about the rules against carrying liquid to MRT-3 stations.
According to the initial report provided by the authorities, around 8:30 AM, a Chinese National named Ms. Jialz Zhang Nepumuceno, 42 years old threw a cup of Taho to Police Officer 1 William Cristobal when she stopped from entering the MRT station for carrying liquid.
The police asked Nepumuceno to consume her liquid first before entering the station, however, Zhang started to confront the uniformed personnel and refused to follow the rules.
Zhang instead of following the cop, threw the taho she carried to the officer which stained his uniform.
The incident prompted Cristobal and PO1 Dominador Olempiada to arrest the suspect for disobedience to an agent or person in authority and direct assault and bring her to the Police Community Precinct 5 in Mandaluyong.
The suspect has undergone booking procedures prior to inquest proceedings for the case of direct assault and disobedience to an agent of authority.
NCRPO Chief Guillermo Eleazar also went to the station to personally visit the Chinese national to remind her to respect the uniformed personnel.
“Do you know that we are just implementing this kind of policies for your protection?” Eleazar told the Chinese National.
Eleazar said he recommended the strict implementation of the “No Foods, No Drinks Allowed” policy at the LRT and MRT as a preventive measure against any terror attack using liquid bombs.
The ban on bringing of liquid items inside the train stations’ premises was enforced in the wake of the January 27 twin blasts in Jolo, Sulu.
Department of Transportation (DOTr) also urged the people to follow the strict rules of MRT-3, saying that it’s for their security.
It’s not yet known if the Chinese National is qualified to be deported for her infamous actions.
