Quezon City Mayor Josefina 'Joy' Belmonte warned that penalty awaits for individuals who are disseminating fake bomb threats in the city.

Belmonte made the warning during a consultation meeting with Quezon City Police District (QCPD), according to the press release posted by QC local government on Friday.

In the past few weeks, classes in New Era Elementary School, Emilio Jacinto National High School, San Francisco High School, and Ponciano Bernardo High School, were suspended after each received information that there are planted explosives inside their respective premises.

“We will go after those who spread false information or pranks about bomb threats. Our schools are supposed to be a safe place for our students, and we will not take these pranks and threats lightly,” the QC mayor said as quoted by QC local government.


In the same meeting, QCPD Director PBGen. Nicolas Torre III vowed to track down those who are behind the bomb scare.

Any threat in regards to bombs, explosives, or any similar device, is considered a violation as stipulated under Presidential Decree No. 1727.
