"Ignorance of the law excuses no one," that is why it must be complied.
This is how Malay Administrator Godofredo Sadiasa described the implementation of the ordinance being carried out in Boracay which everyone must comply, local or foreign alike.
Nonetheless Sadiasa said, if there’s any vehicle that entered Boracay without documents despite of the instruction of the local government of Malay for small motorboats to inspect the documents of motorcycles being transported, this is probably because of the amount being paid just to bring the vehicle across the island.
This explanation by the administrator followed as a response relating to the complaint of a certain foreign businessman whose vehicle has been apprehended in Boracay.
The said tourist businessman questioned about why they haven’t been inspected and enlightened about the existing ordinance before they actually transported the vehicle and was just apprehended when they were already in the island.
If recalled the local government had implemented a moratorium to stop the entry of vehicles of any kind which commenced last June 1st during which the ordinance of stopping the issuance of permit to transport has also been enforced.
