Vico Sotto Stops Illegal Demolition of Homes in Pasig
Two families in Pasig became victims of illegal demolition of their homes, according to Mayor Vico Sotto, who was on the scene before any further damage could be made.
“Nasa loob sila nung biglang winasak ng crane ang bahay nila (may kasama pa silang bata!!),” wrote Sotto on his Facebook page.
(They were inside their home when the crane demolished their house, they had a child with them!”)
According to Sotto, the businessman and contractor behind the demolition failed to produce any document approving the demolition.
“Mabuti na lang dumating agad ang pulis, kung hindi, baka nasa 100 bahay na ang pinagiba nila,” said Sotto.
(“It’s fortunate that the police arrived immediately, or they could have demolished 100 houses.”)
“May mga tao talagang walang puso. Sa panahon pa talaga ng national health crsis??” added Sotto.
(“Some people are really heartless, how could they do this in the middle of a national health crisis?”)
Sotto consoled the victims after giving relief packages and financial aid.

Vico Sotto Responds to Fire Victims
In a separate incident, Sotto visited the victims of a fire in Barangay San Joaquin, in which 26 families lost their homes. Sotto provided financial aid and relief packages to the victims. It is the third time a fire broke out in the same town, which is why Sotto reminded everyone on safety measures involving electrical appliances.
