Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto ordered the closure of a Chinese restaurant for operating without the necessary business permit.
Sotto warned business owners and workers in the city of hefty fines and closure if they continue to operate without clearance from the local government.
Sotto said on his Facebook page that one must follow the law if one wants to do business in Pasig. He also posted photos of Chinese restaurant Fu Yuan Ji being padlocked by authorities.
Since he assumed office in June last year, Sotto has ordered the closure of several establishments for violating laws and regulations, including a meat processing plant that had been discharging waste water to a drainage that connects Pasig River and Manila Bay.
The mayor also expressed his disapproval of Philippine offshore gaming operators and offered to assist the Bureau of Immigration in deporting illegal Chinese workers in the city.
