Angkas will no longer work

"I will present the City Council a demand to lead an uncommon session to approve me. I will make an intrigue to the Supreme Court in the interest of the riding open," said Osmeña in a question and answer session on Tuesday (December 18). 

Last December 5, the Supreme Court issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) halting the impact of a choice made by the Mandaluyong City Court that would permit Angkas to work in spite of complaints from transport area controllers including the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). 

The LTFRB had before recorded a body of evidence against Angkas, requesting that the court suspend its tasks in light of the absence of an establishment to work an open transport framework. 

Angkas, be that as it may, did not hang tight for any court choice and rather, intentionally ceased its cruiser for-enlist activities. 

In settling the case for Angkas, the Mandaluyong City court said there was no explicit law precluding cruisers from being utilized as open transport and denied the LTFRB from meddling with the activities of Angkas. 

LTFRB spoke to the Supreme Court, which came about to the issuance of a TRO, only four months after Angkas continued its activities. 

Open 

Osmeña emphasized that the TRO has made it progressively troublesome for individuals to travel particularly those living in the mountain barangays. 

"The habal-habal drivers as of now have their own lawful case. I will make an intrigue for the benefit of the riding open, which is extremely the genuine individuals enduring," said Osmeña. 

"They are the most astounding need," he included. 

He additionally said that the choice is making agitation and destabilization in zones where open transportation is restricted. 

This biting issue of absence of open transportation drove the city hall leader to acquire the case to the SC the expectation of bringing back the tasks of Angkas and other habal-habal drivers. 

"The guess, plainly, is that it isn't solid. Do you anticipate that the understudies should walk? We don't generally require this sort of issue," said Osmeña. 

Habal-habal bolster 

The intrigue is only one of the ways Osmeña demonstrates his help for the habal-habal industry, since the contentions emerged on whether the habal-habal is an authoritative document of transportation. 

Last Dec. 13, Osmeña posted on his Facebook account that the suspension of the habal-habal drivers will genuinely influence very nearly 30 mountain barangays in Cebu City, which notwithstanding having a place with a profoundly urbanized city, still experience the ill effects of the lack of open transport. 

He said the city is assigning an extra spending plan of P200 million for the charging of free transports to transport travelers living in these mountain barangays. 

Last Monday, the City Council endorsed, amid an uncommon session, a P15 million portion for a rice sponsorship for 6,000 enrolled habal-habal drivers in Cebu City. 

The city is focusing to convey all the crisis rice help before the finish of December. 

The assets for the rice help will be taken from the city's offer from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor). 

Francisco "Airhead" Fernandez, official right hand to the city hall leader, said the city hall leader will issue an Executive Order (EO) at the earliest opportunity to decide how to disperse the sacks of rice to the enlisted drivers. 

"The EO will cover how much and when we will arrange the rice from the NFA (National Food Authority), how to approve the enrolled drivers, and how to disseminate the sacks of rice to the drivers," said Fernandez. 

Fernandez said that the EO is important to control the conveyance of the sacks of rice and to ensure that they are gotten by the best possible recipients. 

Osmeña said that the city effectively sorted out the habal-habal drivers in the barangays so they can be enrolled with the city and be qualified as recipients. 

"They revealed to me it's financially incomprehensible. We need to make an instrument, give them a ticket or something with the goal that the drivers can guarantee their sack some place. We will endeavor to surge it," said Osmeña. 

'Legislative issues' 

Osmeña additionally rejected the cases of the restriction that the crisis rice appropriation for the habal-habal drivers was a political ploy to help his appointment in the May 2019 decisions. 

"That is so uncalled for. I didn't request that the Supreme Court settle on that choice. When you help individuals who are enduring, they say it's legislative issues. In the event that they blame you for not helping individuals, they additionally call it governmental issues. We are simply helping individuals," he said. 

"That is their attitude that these is simply legislative issues. All I see are the habal-habal drivers who are influenced," he included. 

Fight in court 

The Supreme Court arrange is the most recent scene in the fight in court between DBDOYC Inc., the organization that possesses the Angkas application, and the administration offices which demand that cruisers for contract are perilous as open transport. 

In an announcement issued last December 13, Angkas said it would proceed with "our battle to serve workers in a protected and proficient way, and also legitimizing our riders." 

"We are confident that the Supreme Court will in the end decide for the Filipino riding open," the announcement read. 

As indicated by Angkas, the TRO will influence the occupation of 25,000 biker-accomplices "a couple of days before Christmas, when their families require it the most."
