MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim released a statement on Saturday saying that the enforcers were arrested by authorities on Friday afternoon.

Based on the investigation by the MMDA, the motorcycle riders were delivering food to their customers when they were flagged down by the traffic enforcers at the Edsa-Ayala southbound loading and unloading bay. The enforcers were then said to have demanded money from the riders.

The delivery crews were asked for Php 500 and Php 100 respectively in return for passage through EDSA. The riders gave the requested amount but later reported the incident to the Makati City Police.

The MMDA enforcers were arrested. They are now being detained at the Makati City Police headquarters, awaiting the filing of appropriate charges against them.

“We will not allow anyone to taint the good image of the agency. Both of them are automatically terminated from service,” Lim said. “The agency has no room for this kind of traffic enforcers. Wrongdoings should never be tolerated.”
