Makati issues closure order to 3 business establishments

The Makati Business Permit Office (BPO) recently served closure orders on three business establishments for violating provisions of the Revised Makati Revenue Code and Republic Act 9208, bringing up to 230 the number of establishments ordered closed by administration of Mayor Abby Binay since July last year.
In a report to the mayor, the BPO named the two establishments found operating without a mayor’s permit as Dalat Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine in Barangay San Antonio and Pimentel Welding Shop in Barangay Rizal. These were closed down for violating Section 4A.01 of the Revised Makati Revenue Code, or City Ordinance No. 2004-A-025.
On the other hand, the Loreamar Spa Services in Barangay San Antonio has violated Section 4 of RA 9208, also known as “Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003.” It was raided by the Makati police last June 28, assisted by six personnel from the Makati Social Welfare Department.
Upon taking office last year, Mayor Abby ordered the BPO, city building official and other concerned city agencies to intensify efforts to crack down on businesses operating illegally in the city.
The current administration has taken a strict stance on the enforcement of the city revenue code “to protect the interest of legitimate businesses that have underpinned the sustained economic growth of Makati.”
The imposition of the mayor’s permit and other regulatory fees by the city government to regulate any business activity or undertaking conducted within Makati is part of the police powers granted under the Local Government Code of the Philippines.
Meanwhile, violation of Section 4 of RA 9208, the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003, carries the following penalties: For individual offenders, imprisonment of 20 years and a fine of not less than P1 million but not more than P2 million.
