Child protection proposal
approved on first reading

An ordinance prescribing the mandatory posting of notice and information regarding child protection on establishments whose business operation is prejudicial to the development and welfare of minors, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod on first reading Wednesday.

The ordinance, authored by Councilor Em Lagaspi-Ang, said the city government is duty-bound to protect its constituent minors against business establishments whose unregulated operation contributes significantly in the formation of rebellious and deviant character, erosion of positive values, and in jeopardizing their development as well.

It said it is necessary for the city government, through the Sangguniang Panlungsod, to adopt a clear-cut measure that would send a strong message to the establishments concerned about their moral and social responsibility to keep the minors from engaging in activities that are not appropriate for their age and may destroy their future, it said.

The ordinance will cover all establishments in the City of Bacolod whose business operation may prejudice the development and welfare of minors.

The ordinance provides that any establishment found to have removed its posted notice, or defaced or damaged it, will be meted the penalty of P1,000 for the first offense, P3,000 and one month suspension of license or permit to operate for the second offense, and P5,000 and permanent cancellation of license to or permit to operate.

Ang is the chairman of the SP Committee on Social Services and Committee on Gender and Development.*CGS
