No more late-night gimiks: QC to strictly implement curfew for minors

0 314

The Quezon City government has appealed to parents and guardians of minors to comply with City Ordinance 2301-2014 also known as the Quezon City Discipline Hour Ordinance for Minors.

City Administrator Aldrin Cuna said there nothing wrong implementing Discipline Hours from 10 pm to 5 am as the Supreme Court had already declared the ordinance as constitutional.

“Although we are yet to receive an official copy or transmittal from the Supreme Court regarding their ruling, it was announced that the Quezon City ordinance is constitutional so we interpret it to mean that there’s nothing wrong in implementing the Discipline Hours,” Cuna said during Thursday’s regular meeting of the Quezon City Peace and Order Council.

Quezon City Police District head, Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar, has already ordered the city’s police station commanders to commence implementing the city ordinance.

Eleazar reminded law enforcers to follow the directive of Mayor Herbert Bautista to make sure that the conditions set by the Ordinance are followed and that human rights are fully safeguarded when implementing the Discipline Hours.
