Bertiz reprimanded


The House of Representatives voted 159-1-3 yesterday to reprimand partylist Rep. Aniceto “John” Bertiz (ACTS-OFW) after he apologized in a privilege speech over the coarse behaviour he showed during a routine airport security check.

Minority Leader Danilo Suarez motioned to hand Bertiz a mere reprimand, his run-in with airport security being his first offense for which the penalty of suspension being demanded by some “is severe and inappropriate.”

A CCTV footage of the incident showed Bertiz bullying an airport personnel after refusing to remove his shoes upon entry at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
