Batasan no fly-zone on SoNA day




As in previous years, the Batasang Pambansa and its vicinity will be no-fly zones on Monday, 22 July, when President Rodrigo Duterte delivers his fourth State of the Nation Address.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said the order will be in effect from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. within a four-nautical mile (about 7.4 kilometers) radius from the surface to 10,000 feet of the House of Representatives in Batasan, Quezon City. Remote-controlled drones are included in the ban.

The Philippine National Police have earlier declared 14,000 cops will be deployed to augment military forces securing the event.
