Revelers Warned vs Staining Faces, Wearing Short Shorts


Byline: DANNY G. FAJARDO

ILOILO CITY -- No bringing of bottles, backpacks, barbeque sticks, and similar items. No carrying of firearms or any deadly weapon like knives or bolos.

These are just some of the prohibitions the Iloilo City Police will strictly enforce during the Dinagyang Festival highlights on January 27 and 28.

Call the city police a "kill joy," but policemen will also be running after those staining their faces with soot or mud.

What's the catch?

City police director Sr. Supt. Wesley Barayuga said they will make sure this year's Dinagyang is peaceful, orderly, and clean.

Barayuga also made a special appeal to ladies: do not wear "very short shorts" sleeveless tops, or any provocative clothes to avoid being molested by rude men.

That is why aside from these prohibitions, he said, policemen will also enforce strictly several city ordinances against littering, public smoking, urinating in public places, and curfew for minors.

Barayuga urged revelers to adhere to the ordinances and the prohibitions the police have outlined to avoid trouble.

He, however, assured the public that the police will observe maximum tolerance.

Minors not accompanied by their parents or guardians, especially during nighttime, will be apprehended and placed in the custody of the city police's Women and Children Protection Desk.

"We are discouraging minors from roaming around the city without any purpose. This is also for their own safety," Barayuga stressed.

For those fond of displaying their jewels, Barayuga appealed to them not to.
