CIDG: Eight others, including ‘Poblacion girl,’ will face charges


The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group announced that the ‘Poblacion girl,’ along with eight other quarantine breaches, will face charges.

According to the CIDG, Gwyneth Anne Chua, dubbed the “Poblacion girl” by netizens, would face criminal charges along with her parents and staff members of her alleged quarantine hotel.

“CIDG’s investigators found that Ms. Chua, as a Returning Overseas Filipino, is obliged to follow the health regimen prescribed by IATF and DOH,” the agency said in a statement.

Her leaving the quarantine facility and failing to follow the procedure violated sections of Republic Act No. 11332, which states that “failure to comply with a quarantine order or directive duly issued by a public health authority, as well as violation of any terms or conditions of the quarantine or isolation order or directive issued by a public health authority.”

The CIDG went on to say that it still hasn’t gotten enough evidence and materials to charge the people who were with Chua on December 23 when she committed her offenses.

Chua is currently being held in isolation at a quarantine center in Manila after testing positive for the virus last week.

As per investigators’ reports, Chua was fetched by her father less than twenty minutes after checking in at the Berjaya Hotel in Makati on December 22 at 11:23pm, where she was meant to complete her quarantine time.

According to the reports, witnesses and sufficient CCTV footage reveal that Chua traveled to restaurants and bars to party without isolating herself, and only returned to the Berjaya Hotel on December 25 at 9 p.m., escorted by her own mother.

COVID-19 positive data have already been obtained from 7 of Chua’s 15 close connections, as well as 1 of her secondary contacts.
