MPD arrests 34 ‘irresponsible’ parents

Manila police officers have arrested 34 parents of minors who have been tagged as quarantine protocol violators.

The parents were arrested after Manila City Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso warned that their neglect of children is a violation of the Anti-Child Endangerment Act.

Domagoso said that the city government is serious in implementing its policies particularly in this time of pandemic.

"Kailangan matuto ang mga magulang na disiplinahin ang kanilang mga anak," Domagoso said.

"I have to bite the bullet, I have to implement the law to keep the order in Manila," he added.

Domagoso said that the city government has no choice but to intervene if parents allow their children to leave their homes without face mask during curfew hours.


"We’re not happy about it. I am not happy. I don’t want to separate children and parents. But I will do that if you’re irresponsible parents," the Mayor said.

"I will intervene as government to take care of our children or minors. That is also the job of the government, to intervene," he added.

The Manila Police District and Manila Department of Social Welfare said the arrests were made in the following the barangays: 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 56, 61, 221, 228.

The arrested parents will be facing charges in violation of City Ordinance No. 8243 or the Anti-Child Endangerment Act.
