Over 400 minors rounded up on first night of Manila curfew


OVER 400 minors were plucked out from the streets of Manila during the first night of the “full blast” implementation of the city curfew.

They will be turned over to Manila Department of Social Welfare (MDSW) as mandated in a memorandum signed by Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Monday.

Majority of the 435 minors gathered by Police stations 1 to 11 were boys, said Re Fugoso, MDSW chief, during a phone interview at about 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

“Ang na-turn over palang sa amin as of this moment is 250, since 3 a.m,” she said.

The Peace and Order Council, later today, will have its second meeting under the new administration to give the full updates on the operation.
