The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has apologized to Nancy Torrelino Boroc, the woman with no legs who was barred by the security guard from entering their office in Calbayog city last week for the reason that she was only wearing shorts.

In a statement carried by GMA News, BIR said it apologizes for the “inconvenience” it has brought her and promised they “will be more sensitive to the rights of the PWDs”.

According to them, the dress code was supposedly intended for their employees at the district office and not their clients.

“On the other hand, Revenue District Officer Vicente J. Tady of BIR Calbayog asserted that Ms. Boroc was not denied entry, but her companion who was wearing shorts and slippers,” a portion of the statement read.

Tady has also offered an apology to Boroc through the TV program of Raffy Tulfo on Friday.

They have also relieved the security guard who refused entry to Boroc on grounds that she was wearing shorts in supposed violation of the dress code.

The BIR statement also said that it has sent a formal letter-reply directly to the concerned complainant about this.

Boroc’s post about the incident went viral, shared 5,600 times and garnered 10,000 different reactions on social media.
