'Illegal Chinese clinic in Parañaque also raided as sex den last Feb'
MANILA - The illegal clinic for Chinese workers discovered in a subdivision in Parañaque was also raided before as a sex den, residents said Tuesday.
Mel Marquez, president of the We Love Multi Homeowners Association, said the same house was raided in February 9.
"Kung tutuusin dapat hotbed na 'yan. Dapat under close monitoring na 'yan. Hindi na po dapat nagkaroon ng second opportunity," he told ABS-CBN's Teleradyo.
Gilbert, an eyewitness during the February raid, said naked men and women went out of the house through its second floor. A Chinese man sought refuge inside their home but was arrested by law enforcement, he said.
"Kumatok sa'min ang raiding officer, not sure if NBI or PNP. Nakiusap pumasok at hinuli yung tao," he said.
Gilbert questioned how the Chinese nationals could have made it through the security of the subdivision, which has some 2,000 houses and 7,000 residents.
"That’s the great question, kung paano 'yang mga katulad na 'yan nakakalusot. Kami, di kami basta makalabas, makapasok during ECQ (enhanced community quarantine). May window hours lang kung kailan kami pwede gumalaw," he said.
The construction of a building for Chinese workers in the subdivision also continue despite a cease-and-desist order from the mayor's office, Marquez said.
Makeshift clinics for supposed Chinese COVID-19 patients were also discovered in Fontana Leisure Park in Clark, Pampanga and Makati.
