Fixed and random checkpoints will continue amid complaints aired by residents on long queues brought about by the strict implementation of the ‘No ID No Entry’ policy in Zamboanga city.

Authorities have reportedly met last Saturday in the face of numerous complaints about the long queues of vehicles in checkpoints  brought about by strict inspection procedures.

The long line of vehicles in checkpoints was observed after the implementation of the No ID, No Entry policy which resulted to a more detailed inspection of vehicles and its passengers.

Some affected residents interviewed by DZT expressed their support for strict measures recommended by authorities.

They however said that the new policy should have been reviewed prior to implementation.

Several complained of having their schedules disrupted because of the ‘No ID No Entry’ policy.

In a press release from City Hall, Zamboanga Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco- Salazar and police and military authorities appealed  for understanding as they try to implement the policy as part of stringent security measures following the siege in Marawi city. (Liza Jocson)
