Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos and Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos turned over to authorities the suspect in the alleged online sale of government-procured COVID-19 vaccines in Mandaluyong City.

The suspect, identified as Kyle Bonifacio, 22, was turned over to Philippine National Police (PNP) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for proper investigation.

Chairman Abalos said Bonifacio, accompanied by his parents, voluntarily surrendered to them.

Mayor Abalos said Bonifacio’s father, a barangay kagawad in Mandaluyong City, called her up last night and volunteered to surrender his son.

“The father decided to surrender his son to us.”

“Kyle’s parents were surprised when authorities went to their house and started to investigate their son. The father decided to surrender his son to us,” the lady mayor said.

“We consider the case solved.”

The traffic chief said they consider the case solved and will leave the full investigation to the PNP and NBI for the appropriate filing of charges.

“We will see to it that justice is served,” stressed the traffic head warning the public that selling and buying of COVID-19 vaccines is illegal.

He also urged the public to report incidents of selling of vaccine slots to the authorities.

“Individuals who offer vaccine slots for a fee and those who will buy the vaccine slots may be charged,” the MMDA chief warned.
