MANILA, Philippines — San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora on Friday accompanied a Lalamove rider in filing a complaint against a reveler who allegedly drenched the rider, his mobile phone and the documents he was carrying during the Wattah Wattah Festival on June 24.

In his complaint, Eustaquio Rapal said he was performing his duties as a Lalamove rider when he encountered the rowdy reveler.

Zamora assured the public that the city government would provide all necessary support to Rapal and other complainants in their pursuit of justice.

“I am very disappointed with the behavior of a few who managed to put a blight on the celebration of the Feast of St. John the Baptist,” he said.

The festival has been repeatedly criticized for years over the disruption and potential danger it poses to residents and passers-by.

“We will not tolerate any form of misconduct that disrupts our community events and endangers the well-being of our citizens. Our city’s festivals are meant to unite us in celebration, not to be tarnished by the reckless actions of a few,” he added. —Antonio Iñares
