Mayor orders crackdown
on lewd shows in Sibulan


Mayor Marcela Bartoces of Sibulan, Negros Oriental, vowed to close down entertainment bars in her town once the operators are caught violating the law prohibiting lewd shows.

She had a meeting with the operators and managers of at least seven entertainment bars in Sibulan town last Friday. The mayor said she wanted to impose a dress code for the employees working in entertainment bars. These establishments will be required to follow the dress code especially for the lady workers.
