The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is reminding everyone that the No Contact Apprehension Policy (NCAP) is still suspended.

If you see any Facebook post claiming otherwise, it is fake news. The agency is urging everyone to be wary of what they read online, making sure to double-check the information.

The temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Supreme Court is still in effect, prohibiting any apprehensions through the program and related ordinances, covering Manila, Quezon City, Valenzuela City, Parañaque City, Muntinlupa, the Land Transportation Office (LTO), and the MMDA.

“Ang operasyon ng NCAP ay sinuspinde ng MMDA simula pa Agosto noong nakaraang taon kasunod ng pagpapalabas ng temporary restraining order ng Supreme Court,” the MMDA said.

(The operation of the NCAP was suspended by the MMDA since August last year following the issuance of a temporary restraining order by the Supreme Court.)

Leading to its suspension, the NCAP was highly criticized for the way it enforced violations, its heavy penalty fees, and the lack of information regarding its regulations.
