Closes one shop for non-compliance
Manila Vice Mayor Isko Moreno was busy a few days ago looking after the welfare of his younger constituents – he was out and about in Manila personally inspecting computer shops after several parents complained about kids getting addicted to online games like DoTA during school hours inside said shops. Computer shops are required by many municipalities and cities to not allow students inside their premises during school hours or else face stiff penalties. One shop found out the hard way that Isko is not a mayor to be messed with when it comes to kids and their education.
The offending shop, located in Dapitan, was forced to close because of non-compliance – essentially the place was teeming with elementary and high school students (around 300) during school hours, a grave violation of Manila Ordicance No. 8168. In addition, the internet cafe was essentially a death trap and did not have a fire exit in case of emergencies which is obviously a dangerous problem.
Kids, we know it’s tempting to skip school and play games all day, but there’s a reason why your parents are sending you to school. We’re gamers ourselves so we totally understand where you guys are coming from, but don’t be a fool and stay in school.
