Businesses and establishments in Manila are now prohibited from peddling secondhand phones under the directive of Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso. According to a press briefing, the Mayor also announced that an ordinance regarding the matter is currently being drafted. Last September, the Mayor had threatened to close down Isetann Mall in Recto if the establishment continued to allow vendors to sell stolen mobile phones.
