Mayor supports arrest of bystanders in city

BAGUIO CITY June 21 – Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan expressed his all-out support to the recent order handed down by president Rodrigo R. Duterte for the members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to arrest bystanders to help improve the overall peace and order situation in the country.

The local chief executive said that instilling the proper discipline to individuals was done during the martial law years through the arrest of bystanders, thus, the marching order of the President to arrest bystanders in the different parts of the country should serve as a warning to erring individuals to shape up or else they will face the consequences of their illegal activities.

"We fully support the President's order to the PNP to arrest erring bystanders that is why unscrupulous individuals in the city's barangays who often create trouble in the neighbourhood should be warned that they could be arrested once they will be found to be involved in illegal activities," Domogan stressed.

He called on the bystanders in the city's barangays to start changing their ways and not to await their arrest and the eventual filing of the appropriate charges against them by the law enforcers.

According to him, people should now be empowered to be involved in productive activities in their barangays instead of loitering around doing nothing that could result to their being arrested and charged which will surely affect their standing in the communities where they belong.

Domogan called on law enforcers to implement the arrest of by standards pursuant to the guidelines governing the arrest of bystanders that were recently issued by the PNP leadership to prevent them from being charged by innocent individuals.

He said that the local government has existing ordinances that could be strictly implemented by law enforcers to justify the arrest of erring bystanders in the city's 128 barangays that is why policemen should not be afraid being charged by those they were able to arrest because they are armed with the appropriate local laws that will justify their operations against bystanders.

He claimed that there were already precedents in the past in relation to the implementation of the arrest against erring bystanders that is why the best that people should do now is to compare with the marching orders from the President to prevent them from being arrested and charged that will eventually compromise their good standing in the places where they come from.

He also urged the city's youth to strictly comply with the curfew for minors being currently implemented by the members of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) in coordination with the City Social Welfare and Development Office to avoid unnecessary incidents that will compromise their safety and security and even their studies because what is important is for them to attend their classes and go home as soon as they will be dismissed to avoid untoward incidents leading to their violation of the existing curfew for minors.

From the previous 7 pm curfew for minors being implemented by the local government, the same curfew ordinance was amended that moved the time of curfew to 9 pm daily.
