Family eyes complaint vs. Makati hotel where Christine Dacera was found lifeless

The Dacera family is eyeing to file a complaint against the hotel in Makati City, where the lifeless body of 23-year-old flight attendant Christine was found on January 1.

"Mrs. (Sharon) Dacera is contemplating in filing a complaint against the hotel. The hotel allowed nine or ten individuals in one room, 2209, and seven persons in another room, 2207," Brick Reyes, spokesperson of the Dacera family, said at a press briefing.

He said allowing a number of individuals in hotel rooms is against the regulations being enforced by the national government amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We believe it's against the rules of the IATF (Interagency Task Force) for operations of hotels, that's one action she would like to take," he added.

The Department of Tourism already issued a show cause order for the City Garden Grand Hotel to explain within three days why it should not be suspended for the possible violations for accepting guests for leisure purposes.

"It has come to the attention of the DOT that the demise of a Philippine Airlines flight attendant allegedly occurred during a party held in your establishment on 31 December 2020. We understand based on reports that several individuals have checked-in or spent the evening in one of your rooms on the said date," the DOT letter read.

GMA News Online has contacted the said hotel for its comment regarding the matter but it has yet to issue a statement as of posting time.—AOL, GMA News
