Chel Diokno protests against Muntinlupa’s 24-hour curfew
Abogado Chel Diokno continues to monitor possible abuses during the Enhanced Community Quarantine. The abogado is against the 24-hour curfew implementation by Muntinlupa.
Siyempre nakikiusap tayong manatili lahat sa bahay, pero labag na sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansang ito. Ang "24-hour curfew" ay outright denial of the right to travel and freedom of movement. (1/2)https://t.co/4qZXem0Oy8

Diokno noted that while everyone is encouraged to stay home, there are clearly exemptions to note. The abogado said that it’s an outright denial of the right to travel and movement especially for juveniles.
The abogado added that they cannot be penalized and must only be returned to their homes in the care of their parents.
