Partylist congressman John Bertiz III figured in another controversy, this time at NAIA. A viral video allegedly shows ACTS OFW congressman Bertiz refusing to remove his shoes after being asked to do so by NAIA security personnel.

In the NAIA CCTV video posted on social media, Aniceto John Bertiz III can be seen allegedly refusing to take off his shoes as part of security measured being implemented at the airport. Moreover, it looked like Bertiz even shoved his ID to the NAIA security staff to identify himself as a VIP. Bertiz was also seen ripping off the ID of the poor security personnel.

In contrast, Imee Marcos, who entered the frame a few seconds before Bertiz complied with the security measures as she was seen putting her shoes back on.

The incident reportedly occurred at NAIA Terminal 2 on Saturday, September 29.

As expected, netizens were quick to condemn and slam Congressman Bertiz. Aside from being called ‘ignorante’, ‘arogante’, ‘abusive’, etc., some netizens called on President Duterte and Speaker Gloria Arroya to take action of Bertiz. Others said he is too arrogant and abusive for someone who is just a partylist representative.
