Jose Alvarez thanks police for assistance in recent accident
Business tycoon and newly-elected Palawan governor Jose Ch. Alvarez held a press conference to personally thank the traffic division of the Quezon City Police District. Alvarez’s son, Jose “Jim” Alvarez, was killed in a car accident on the night of August 29. The Quezon City police attended to the accident.
Alvarez wanted to thank the police, including the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) for their handling of the accident. Alvarez said that the police turned over all the valuables from the accident scene, including a Rolex watch, wallet with ATM and credit cards, and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Alvarez also asked the Quezon City government to improve the safety of the Katipunan Avenue flyover where the accident took place, to avoid future incidents of this nature. After the fatal accident, the Quezon City government belatedly installed plastic barriers and lighting at the foot of the flyover to make the concrete divider more visible to approaching motorists.
At the press conference were Police Superintendent Joel D. Pagdilao, Police Senior Superintendent Popoy G. Lipana, Representative Franz Alvarez (first district, Palawan), and night duty officer SPO4 Henry Se. Se was the one who responded to the accident. Pagdilao praised his team for doing their job and for their honesty, especially as the accident happened late at night.
Alvarez is behind the group of companies distributing BMW, Kia, and Peugeot in the Philippines.
