MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Francsico “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said on Friday night that the issue on the Philippines’ sovereignty should not be ignored.

“They could be conditioning our mind-set. Soon we’d be surprised who’s in our backyard, we’d be surprised at our children’s answers in Social Studies,” he said in a tweet.


The Manila city government shut down on Thursday four establishments of Elegant Fumes Beauty Product Inc., a Binondo-based cosmetics company which described in the packaging of one of its products that Manila is a province of the People’s Republic of China.

The city cited several violations committed by the company, including misrepresentation and distribution without the necessary permit from the Food and Drug Administration. Domagoso also sought the deportation of two Chinese who own the company.
