GRAB TO PROVIDE BAIL ASSISTANCE TO FEMALE DRIVER ARRESTED IN TAGUIG
Grab Philippines on Thursday vowed to extend assistance to one of its drivers who was arrested after asking a cop to move his car that was supposedly blocking a pick-up area in a commercial establishment in Taguig City on Tuesday evening.
Florence Norial, 26, was arrested for allegedly assaulting Police Captain Ronald Saquilayan but insisted that she had acted on self-defense as the cop initially pushed her.
In a statement, Grab said: “We have received reports regarding one of our driver-partners who was detained after allegedly disrespecting a police officer. The safety and welfare of our driver-partners remain top priority for us at Grab,”
“We are currently coordinating with the family of our driver-partner, and we will provide bail assistance for her immediate release,” it added.
According to Norial’s boyfriend, Mirza Miguel Shahzad, Saquilayan just ignored the female driver when she used her vehicle’s headlights and horn so she could pass through the driveway.
