Espinosa suspends 2AM liquor ban
Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III has temporarily suspended Executive Order (EO) 146, series of 2017 directing the mandatory closure at 2:00 in the morning of all bars, night clubs, disco bars, resto bars and other similar establishments in Iloilo City.
Espinosa issued EO 008 suspending 2AM liquor ban from Friday Jan. 25 immediately preceding the Kasadyahan on Jan. 26 and Dinagyang on Jan. 27.
“I am temporarily suspending the Executive Order which I previously issued. However, this is only applicable starting this Friday until Monday morning. This is in connection with Dinagyang celebration because some businessmen here appealed for the relaxation of the rule,” Espinosa said.
