- A daughter of Tito Sotto’s dismissed employee posted an open letter on facebook.
- She expressed her disappointment regarding the treatment that her father has experienced.
Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III‘s close-in photographer’s daughter expressed her disappointment regarding the sudden dismissal of her father; this was written via an open letter.
Camille Muñoz David posted on facebook saying how confused they are since it’s 20 days before Christmas Day, her father was forced to sign a resignation letter and didn’t even have a chance to ask why.
“Kahit sinong empleyado, lalo kung makapangyarihan at maimpluwensiya ang kanilang amo, ay walang karapatang magreklamo kung nais silang tanggalin sa trabaho.
“Pero tao rin po ang tatay ko at tao rin kaming mga anak niya na marunong magdamdam at sumama ang loob!”
She said that her father started working for Senator Sotto on July 2, at the same time their mother was battling with stage 4 cancer.
Her father’s contract was supposed to be “co-terminus”, which meant that he’s to work with Sotto as long as he’s in the Senate.
“Tanda namin ang mga petsang ito dahil habang inaatake ng ‘cancer’ ang aming ina, wala si Daddy sa kanyang tabi. Habang nagpapa-chemotherapy siya, hindi rin niya kasama si Daddy kasi may bago na siyang trabaho — sa opisina mismo ni Senate President Sotto.”
When their mother died in October, they were all devastated, but a part of them had a bit hope as their father has a nice job.
“Kahit may lungkot, pinipilit naming mag-adjust. Lalo na si Daddy na palaging inspirasyon ang pumasok sa Senado — siguro para maibsan ang lungkot na nararamdaman sa loob ng aming bahay. Sabi pa niya, panibagong simula ito sa kanilang pamilya — para sa aming mga anak niya at mga apo niya.”
David further stated that no one even bothered to explain why her father was dismissed from the office. It even added to their father’s sadness from the passing of his wife.
“Binigyan n’yo na sana ng pag-asa, na-murder n’yo rin pala,” she snapped.
The Netizen concluded that her father doesn’t know that she wrote the letter, but her siblings felt like their father was a victim of unfair treatment.
