Curfew of minors to be enforced
The Metro Manila police and the Local Government Units will strictly implement a curfew of minors while investigation of missing children and teenagers continues.
“Police Director Leonardo Espina has coordinated with local government executives to implement curfew hours for our children,” Chief Insp. Kimberly Molitas, spokesman of the National Capital Region Police Office, told reporters Thursday in Camp Crame.
She said curfew will start at 10 p.m. which most localities have provided in their respective ordinances.
“It would be 17 years and below,” she said, when asked about the age limit.
“Actually, our profile is from age 11 to 17 were persons reported missing.”
Molitas called on parents to look after their own children.
Let’s not allow to loiter anywhere after 10 p.m., they should be inside our house that time or even before that hour,” she said, noting Espina’s instruction to coordinate with Social Welfare department as well. With Francisco Tuyay
