In a social media post by Aksyon Radyo Iloilo, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas threatens to reimpose the liquor ban, should there be any alcohol-related incidents. It can be recalled that starting today (May 25), there will no longer be any limitation in purchasing alcoholic beverages.
According to Treñas, drinking alcoholic beverages in public is strictly prohibited.
“If may nagapakita gid sang mga rason nga dapat ibalik ang total liquor ban, ang City Government is counting any possibility nga ibalik – kung makit-an ta nga nagainom sa publiko, gainom sa restaurant, gainom sa gwa sang ila panimalay,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
Treñas specified that drinking outside one’s home, in restaurants, along the sidewalk, along the road, and in barangay facilities are strictly prohibited.
