The Quezon City (QC) council approved the ordinance that will ban nudity in public areas.
District 2 Councilor Ranulfo Ludovica authored the City Ordinance 2623-2017 that will not allow topless, bottomless or completely naked people roaming around the street.
“There are people oblivious to the senses, feelings, and emotions of others who are displaying, walking or roaming around in public places topless, bottomless or completely naked. Naked persons in public places erode decency, exacerbates disorder, and setting a bad example to children,” the ordinance reads.
For the first offense, the violator will pay P1,000 fine or a three-day community service in the barangay he is living.
For the second offense, one will pay P1,500 or five-day service. In third offense, a P3,000 fine is waiting or an imprisonment of six days. In the fourth offense, a P5,000 fine or a year of imprisonment or more at the discretion of the court.
A mentally ill person will be apprehended but will be exempted from the penalty.
