According to Police Major Engelbert Banquillo, Molo police chief, his men and the Intelligence Section of the Iloilo City Police Office conducted the operation against the suspects after receiving information about their activities. He also cited “the many other important activities undertaken by our security personnel” and the “advice coming from various sectors.” There is a liquor ban in the city. The sale and consumption of liquor is prohibited while the city is under an enhanced community quarantine to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the coronavirus disease 2019. The suspects were charged with violation of Article 151 of the Revised Penal Code in relation to Executive Order No. 66-A of Mayor Jerry Treñas, said Banquillo. The combined value of the recoveries was P70,000. “They were not selling per bottle but by boxes,” said Banquillo. “Various incidents due to intoxicated persons” promoted him to backtrack, according to Treñas. “There were several reported incidents and complaints (of) abuse in (the) consumption of alcohol, and violations of physical distancing measures, hence the need to re-impose the prohibition on the sale and consumption of liquor,” stressed Treñas. Covered by the ban are “any form of liquor or alcohol, beverages, or any alcoholic drink containing a specific percentage of alcohol by volume or weight which may be in the form of whisky, brandy, gin, rum, cordial, cocktail, wine, champagne, vermouth, basi, tuba, sake, beer, ale, stout, and the like.”/PN
