Duterte Plans to Implement “Curfew Law” if He Becomes President


In a radio interview, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said that he would implement a curfew he becomes president.

He said in a radio interview on DZMM, “‘Pag ako naging president, ala-una (ng madaling araw) sarado na.

According to him, this is to protect the children as he added, “Ang inaalala ko ay ‘yung mga bata. There’s always a time for everything.

In Davao City, the curfew law is currently in effect. Those who are 18 years of age and below are not allowed to loiter around the city between 10 P.

M. and 5 A.M. unless they are accompanied by their parents or guardians of legal age.

Duterte ordered arrest of parents of said individuals who are caught roaming around the city during the curfew hours.

Is there really a need for a “curfew law”? Do you think this “curfew law” will be effective?
