R O” Sent:
September 2, 2019 9:49:47 PM
: Mr . Patrick Ty , Chief Regulator
email confirms the Laban Konsyumer Inc. media statement
aired on TV Patrol last August 13 on the matter of the fines
imposed by the Supreme Court against Manila Water and
Maynilad on their violation of the Clean Water Act.
That the fines should not be passed on to the consumers now
or in the next rebasing period. Fines are punitive and are the
personal account of the concessionaires.
That we formalizes our request that the payment of the
environmental charge or fee that goes to sewerage should be
temporarily withdrawn or suspended considering that
the services for which the fees are being paid are not delivered
on time to the consumers. In other words ” no pay
for no work ” .
That a public consultation be held by the MWSS for the purpose of
Item 2 above and to fix the amount of rollback on the
acknowledge receipt of this email.
