A POLICE official encouraged the public to enjoy the tourist spots in southern Cebu despite its inclusion in the travel advisory of the United Kingdom (UK) to its citizens as one of the places in the Philippines not to visit due to terrorist threat.
Senior Supt. Jonathan Cabal, Regional Intelligence Division 7 chief, said they have not monitored any presence of armed groups in southern Cebu.
The official, however, said they are not neglecting the advisory.
The Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued the travel advisory last Tuesday. It advised against all travel to western and central Mindanao and Sulu because of terrorist activity and clashes between the military and insurgent groups.
The FCO also advised against all but essential travel to the remainder of Mindanao (excluding Camiguin, Dinagat and Siargao Islands) and to the south of Cebu Province, up to and including the municipalities of Dalaguete and Badian, due to the threat of terrorism.”
Cabal assured the public that they have not stopped monitoring any movement of armed groups in the region. (KAL)
