BISHOP SANTOS CALLS RTC RULING "DISAPPOINTING AND DISGUSTING" OVER CIGARETTE TOTAL BAN








Bishop Ruperto Santos, Diocese of Balanga has committed to protest against the RTC ruling for total cigarette ban in all products. The city had implemented its anti-tabacco ordinance issued by Judge Philger Noel Inovejas of RTC Branch 93 in Balanga but the Bishop called it "disappointing and disgusting."

Bishop Ruperto Santos responded that the mere decision of the RTC stating “is preventive and protects especially children and the youth from future sickness,” should “consider people over profit, general welfare over personal or [financial] interest, health and better life of the people rather than material and monetary gains.”

“We pray and hope that a health- and life-promoting city ordinance would be upheld in the end,” he added.
