Sa Greenhills na lang maghanap! Isko Moreno bans sale of 2nd hand cellphones in Manila
People looking for second hand cellphones will soon have difficulty finding units sold at Recto and Divisoria.
Mayor Isko Moreno on Monday announced a ban on the sale of second hand cellphones in Manila.
He said he is already working with the city council for the legislation of an ordinance to formalize the ban.
Moreno warned business establishments that they might be closed down if they are found to be selling second hand cellphone units.
The mayor said the ban on the sale of second hand cellphones is meant to discourage its theft in the city.
He noted that students are often the victims of thieves who snatch their phones to be sold again.
