“Failure on your part to appear before this Board on the date mentioned above shall be considered a waiver on your part to be heard, and this case shall be decided on the basis of the evidence presented and the records of the Board,” the order dated June 10 and released on Tuesday read.

In a viral TikTok video posted on June 8, complainant Joysh Gutierrez claimed that the driver of the jeepney shouted at her, asking her to get out of the vehicle.

In the caption, Gutierez said that she was asked to leave the jeepney because of her weight.
