    Before arrest, Francis Leo Marcos still helped old lady sleeping under the rain

    MANILA, Philippines – Controversial social media personality Francis Leo Marcos was arrested on March 19 for violation of optometry law, but his staunch followers and supportive fans are quick to point out his good deeds. For example, before his arrest, Marcos was still able to help an old lady slumped at a sidewalk!

    Good samaritan

    Last March 15, netizen Steffie Han shared the sad situation of an old woman who could no longer walk but was sleeping on top of boxes at a sidewalk in Pasay City. She pities the old lady as they could only give her some food. She shared the old woman’s plight in hopes that someone, perhaps the DSWD or Raffy Tulfo or Jessica Soho could help her.

    But before these broadcasters could reach the old woman, she found help from Marcos and some concerned netizens. A group bathed the old woman, then brought her to a safer place where she could have a better place to sleep. They also brought her food and other things she needed, including a folding bed so she wouldn’t have to sleep on boxes.

    “Nadurog po ang aking puso. Inutusan ko po ang aking team sa pangunguna ni Mary Ann Victori at Nestor Victori,” Marcos said in a video.

    This is not the first time that Marcos helped out people in need.

    He has been leading various relief efforts, giving out sacks of rice, canned goods, and even free eyeglasses to many barangays. The last led to his arrest. It is worth noting that the eyeglass ‘crime’ happened back in 2018!

    NBI investigation

    Marcos’ recent arrest stemmed from the NBI investigation requested by his neighbors at Green Meadows, Quezon City. He earned the other residents’ ire when he claimed that they are snotty neighbors who don’t know how to help others in need. The residents got bashed by Marcos’ followers, prompting them to seek help from the NBI, placing the social media personality under investigation.

    As part of the NBI’s standard procedure, a background check was done on Marcos. It was during this background check that they uncovered the arrest warrant issued against Marcos as well as co-accused Hector Sulit and Leonila Avila Vera issued on February 14, 2018 by the Baguio City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 60 on charges of violating the Revised Optometry Law of 1995.

    NBI-Cyber Crime Division (NBI-CCD) Chief Victor Lorenzo said that his agents served the warrant at his home in Quezon City. He was detained at the NBI headquarters in Manila until he posted bail worth Php20,000, as set by the Baguio court.
