He was first involved in his controversial “jokes” during an oath taking ceremony. Now, ACTS OFW party-list Rep. Ancierto “John” Bertiz is once against slammed by the public after CCTV footage of him acting “privileged” for refusing to undergo security check in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) went viral on social media.
In the video, it can be seen that Rep. Bertiz rejected the checking procedure of a security personnel. He was even compared to Ilocos Gov. Imee Marcos, who despite of her surname still underwent security procedure in NAIA.
Netizens said that Rep. Bertiz should remind himself that he is still a public servant and he should not be above any rules and regulations.
To control the damage, Rep. Bertiz immediately released a statement not to apologize but to question how the video got leaked on the internet. He said that the footage provided as “twisted” version of what really happened.
Moreover, he even questioned the security personnel why he did not force some “Chinese-looking” individuals under security procedure.

“Nakakapagtaka na pagkapalusot sa mga Tsino na may escort na NAIA staff eh pinigilan ako [ng security checker] kahit na pinakita ko sa kanya ang NAIA security ID ko at kahit na na-clear na ako sa metal detector at xray machine,” Rep. Bertiz said in a statement.
Moreover, he said: Hinihinala ko na ginawa ito [ng security checker] para hindi ko masita ang NAIA staff na pinalusot ang mga Tsino ng walang security check.
Regarding the leakage of the video, Rep. Bertiz said: Ibig sabihin, baka kapag may krimen na gagawin e kaya nilang isara ang CCTV o burahin ang video footage…Hinihingian po natin ng paliwanag si NAIA GM Ed Monreal tungkol sa insidenteng ito.
Some netizens were not pleased with Rep. Bertiz’ statement and this includes Senator JV Ejercito. In a tweet, Sen. JV accused Rep. Bertiz of being entitled.
“Sense of entitlement? Grabe ka Bossing! Kayabang mo!” he tweeted.
