He said the helper was on the premises of their house so no quarantine rules were violated.


“I am shocked that Makati police has entered my private lawn and property to arrest me because my staff Cherelyn watered the plants on my property without wearing face mask,” Parra said in his Facebook post.


The Makati Police are also preparing to appeal the case against the foreign resident of the said subdivision for non-compliance with ECQ guidelines where everyone is required to wear a face mask in the public and common areas signed by Makati Mayor Abby Binay.
