November 30, 2019 – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Saturday urged Filipinos to follow security procedures and practice discipline during the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

In line with its #DisiplinaMuna program, DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año highlighted that the public should keep all venues clean especially after President Rodrigo Duterte has waived free entrance to most events at the biennial meet.

“Ipakita natin sa ating mga kapitbahay sa ASEAN region at maging sa ibang mga dayuhan na ang mga Pilipino ay hindi lang matinik sa sports kung ‘di isang disiplinadong mamamayan,” he said in a statement.

Año also reminded the public of the prohibited items that cannot be brought to the sports venues to avoid inconvenience.

“Paulit-ulit po ang pag-aanunsyo ng PNP na bawal dalhin at bitbitin sa mga venue ng SEA Games ang ilang mga kagamitin. Ipakita po natin na tayo ay disiplinadong bansa na marunong sumunod sa mga simpleng anunsyong ito,” he said.

Declared as prohibited items are the following:

– weapons and firearms

– sharp objects (including umbrellas and long sticks)

– bottles, cups, and cans (including glass, tetrapak, PET, and other hard material containers)

– pyrotechnic materials (flares, matches, lighters, cigarettes)

– stimulants (alcohol, drugs, and narcotics)

– large bulky objects (including all items that are too large to be placed under venue seats)

– pets or animals

– banners (including flags, exceeding 3×5 feet in dimension; flagpoles exceeding 1 meter in length)
– propaganda materials that promote racism, xenophobia, even charity, and other ideological causes

– possible projectiles (sports equipment like balls and discs)

– noisemakers(airhorns, drums, whistles, bugles, and vuvuzelas; laser pointers)

– video cameras (any recording device that would be used for non-personal ends, drones)

– outside food and beverages.

The DILG added that bags to be brought inside the game venues must be see-through with specific dimensions as the Philipine National Police will be implementing a clear bag policy:

– clear tote bags (12x6x12 inches)
– storage bags (one-gallon capacity)
– small clutch bags (4.5×6.5 inches)

Bags such as backpacks, tinted plastic bags, fanny packs, suitcases, purses, camera cases, duffel bags, and printed bags are advised to be left at home or in the vehicles.

Año said that all prohibited items will be subject to immediate confiscation. (Juno Buena/TC)
