SAGÑAY, Camarines Sur (BicolToday.com) — Resident-voters in Barangay Nato, this town, were surprised that they were ordered to undergo biometric identification procedure, and their photo taken before they were given relief goods of 5 packs of noodles and 2 tin cans of sardines.
The incident happened Thursday afternoon, January 24, in Barangay Nato, this town, when the group of Congressional bet Nonoy Magtuto launched food pack-giving activities to chosen residents.
Camarines Sur congressional candidate for 4th district Nonoy Magtuto himself was “hands-on” during the distribution of food packs.
Several folks were wondering on why their thumb prints have to be registered at a biometric gadget the Magtuto party has been carrying.
After biometric, the residents were required to pose for photo sessions before given the food packs.
Sagñay is the town whose mountain village, Patitinan, was the site of a tragic landslide last December 29, caused by Tropical Depression Usman that left 30 people dead, and some still missing.
