ANGELES CITY – Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan said Tuesday tourists should respect the solemnity of the Holy Week.
The mayor issued the statement in reaction to the incident where local and foreign tourists climbed up and posed on the crosses used in the reenactment of the Passion of Christ in Barangay Lourdes North West here.
Some of the pictures were even posted on Facebook, which earned the ire of many.
“The act of some tourists who posed on the cross was not countenanced nor condoned by the Tourism Office or the barangay council of Lourdes North West. According to the village chief, these photos were taken after the program last Friday,” Pamintuan said.
“Tourists should respect the solemnity of the Holy Week. The intention of the Good Friday program was to make the people remember the deeds, sacrifices, sufferings, and death of Christ to save mankind,” the mayor added.
Because of the incident, the barangay council already removed the crosses that were used last Friday, according to Pamintuan.
The mayor also disclosed that barangay officials exhausted all means to present an organized and well-coordinated Lenten presentation.
“They did not allow the holding of illegal gambling and regulated the number of stalls that sold food and beverages,” the mayor said.
The organizers even enclosed the area for security of the public and requested additional personnel from the Philippine National Police and military, medical team, and other city offices.
