Recently, the Philippine Consulate in Hong Kong raised a warning against Filipinos posting indecent photos on social media. Such activities are considered a crime in Hong Kong and punishable by three years imprisonment and a fine amounting to HK$1,000,000 (PhP6,606,308).

According to the Control of Obscene and Indecent Articles Ordinance (COIAO) of Hong Kong, “a thing is obscene if by reason of obscenity it is not suitable to be published to any person; and a thing is indecent if by reason of indecency it is not suitable to be punished to a juvenile. Obscenity and indecency include violence, depravity, and repulsiveness.”

Filipinos, not just in Hong Kong, but all over the world are advised to respect and follow the rules and regulations of the country that they are currently residing.
