MUNTINLUPA CITY, May 20 (PIA) – This may be good news to housewives and girlfriends of lothario husbands and boyfriends; it may also be good news to moralists and do gooders.
The city government of Muntinlupa recently issued Executive Order No. 8 banning issuance of business permits to construct new motels and inns in the city.
Muntinlupa City Mayor Aldrin L. San Pedro signed the order that aims to protect the morality and welfare of the public, especially the women and children of the city.
San Pedro said the issuance of said order will help prevent, and eventually stop, prostitution that victimizes young women and even children.
Meanwhile, Gabriela Women’s Party lauded the move saying the issuance of said order protects the dignity of women. The women’s group was also thankful for the mayor’s idealistic leadership.
The executive order was based on City Ordinance No. 88-01 which prohibits obscene shows in movie houses, entertainment centers, and food centers or in any private places.
The ordinance also banned selling of porn magazines and posting of sexy billboard ads within the city. (Muntinlupa-PIO/RJB/JEG-PIA NCR)
