A newly organization called Samahan ng mga Progresibong Kabataan or SPARK petitioned the Supreme Court (SC) on Friday to stop the implementation of curfew in Manila, and Navotas.


They said that the ordinance is vague, unjust and repressive, which is to them is "unconstitutional".

The petition was filed by lawyer Jesus Falcis IIIand they asked immediate issuance of temporary restraining order (TRO).

Based of Interaksyon news report, the organization cited these following grounds:


  • The curfew ordinances are unconstitutional under the doctrine of void for vagueness because it results in arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement.

  • The curfew ordinances are unconstitutional because it suffers from overbreadth by proscribing or impairing legitimate activities of minors during curfew hours.

  • The curfew ordinances are unconstitutional because it deprives minors of the right to liberty and the right to travel without substantive due process.

  • The curfew ordinances are unconstitutional because it deprives parents of the natural and primary right of parents in the rearing of the youth without substantive due process.
