CELLULAR PHONES and other electronic communication devices are now prohibited inside the Muntinlupa City Jail, based on an ordinance enacted last Jan. 21 and published on March 4. City Ordinance 19-237 states that any device capable of receiving and sending messages, taking photographs, recording videos, and have internet access are prohibited inside the city jail as it noted the continued use of such gadgets during visitations despite a national prohibition. Violators will be fined P3,000 and their cellphone and other communication devices will be confiscated. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
