    Cocfighting Ban Law in the Philippines - A first Attempt in Cebu

    Cortes blocks cockfighting ordinance

    Mandaue City, Philippines – It’s veto number two.

    Mandaue City Mayor Jonas Cortes returned an ordinance to the opposition-led City Council without stamping his approval.

    The reason for the rejection: It contradicts a national law.

    The ordinance vetoed by the mayor was supposed to ban cockfights in Mandaue City even during fiestas.

    The move came after Cortes also vetoed the ordinance approved by the City Council that regulates the hiring of consultants and advisers.

    According to Cortes, the ordinance banning cockfight contradicts Presidential Decree 449 otherwise known as Cockfighting Law of 1974, which allows the “holding of cockfights during Sundays and legal holidays and during local fiestas for not more than three days.”

    “I exerted earnest efforts to reconcile and harmonize the herein ordinance for consideration to PD 449 but apparently, there is a clear, convincing and irreconcilable repugnancy between the two laws,” Cortes said in his veto message sent to the City Council Friday afternoon.

    Cortes, in an interview, added that the ordinance authored by Majority Floor Leader Victor Biaño was trying to break a generally accepted Filipino tradition.





    LOOKS LIKE THE BATTLE HAS STARTED......................

    REGARDS,

    REGARDS,
    there was a follow-up report in relation to this matter..
    link below page 3.

    they are now attacking sabong on the gambling side of things!
    which can be quite a formidable matter to confront and explain to the "common tao" whose no knowledge of sabong in general...
    due the uniqueness of betting odds and de quorum of fiesta fights.. the ball is on our side of the court.

    yes he could easily summon the illegal gambling law(we dont pay tax directly from our winning chicken--which is by the way VATable..it is a chicken and a commodity..),
    or anti-money laundering legislation(because we dont usually have reciepts from bets just palabra de honor),
    tax evasion charges to close cockpits(or even prevent income generating town fiesta/barangay fiesta from operating cockfights because it generally does not pay tax..even it only takes 10% parada)
    , or he can deny permit to hold cockfight on certain areas almost postponing the fiesta due to noise pollution,traffic congestion problem,high saturation of people for health and safety concerns to requirring DENR environmental impact studies..which could tkae months or years to clear..by then fiesta is long gone!!

    or much worse he is himself an ***.
    and would just order the whole force of his jurisdiction to stop cockfithing declaring it is a form of crulety to animals!!

    somebody brilliant outha challenge this AWA98 in relation to PD449 to set a precedent.

    To my brothers in sports;
    We need an individual like Mayor Jonas Cortes to defend our sport, he has a different mindset.
    Imagine if this sport we will be banned, a horrific and traumatic events will come into play, too many jobs related to the sports will go down the drain and the businesses integrated with the sports will fold.
    Just support our beloved sport..
    Immortal..
