MANILA, Philippines – Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto yesterday closed down a meat processing firm for not having a sewage treatment plant.

Sotto, in a Facebook post, said he shut down Razon Food Corp. because it has been operating without a proper sewage treatment system for the past 12 years.

He said he inspected the plant after receiving reports.

“The dirty water goes straight to the drainage and roads of the city and most of the time, there is still pork blood,” Sotto said.

He added that city environment office employees who allowed the company to operate these past years will be held liable.
