On orders of Makati Mayor Abby Binay, inspectors from the city’s Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) on Tuesday served a closure order on Maxx Hotel in Barangay Poblacion for violating Republic Act 10364 or the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2012.

The Makati Police conducted an entrapment operation last Monday night after receiving a report that the hotel was being used as a prostitution den.

Authorities rescued 35 alleged sex workers who are mostly Chinese women and arrested 21 Chinese men. The continuing crackdown has been ordered by Mayor Abby to restore order and discipline in Makati and protect the interest of legitimate businesses, Makatizens and the general public. Since January this year, the BPLO has closed down 127 errant establishments for violations that include operating without a valid business permit and non-compliance with the National Building Code, Sanitation Code, and other relevant laws and ordinances.
