PIA Press Release

Koreans ask Bacolod local government for safety measures

Bacolod City (5 February) -- The rampant crimes against Korean students in the city prompted the members of the Bacolod Language Center Association to request for additional police visibility in the areas of La Salle Avenue and Gallardo Street in the city.

The Koreans who were managers and owners of the language centers were elated with the prompt response of city government to their request.

The group was composed of: Association President and Chief Executive Officer of Phil-Korea (La Salle Language Center) Oh Jae Yong, General Manager for OK Academy Charlie Sin, Chief Operations Officer Seong Jin Kang of Sky 21 English Institute, Principal Deok Jin Jang of Jason English Language School and Mylene Sison also of Phil-Korea.

Aside from their security concern, the Koreans also suggested to have a possible direct flight which will help increase the arrival of Korean students who will study English in the city. It will also encourage more Korean golfers and tourists to visit.

They are requesting for notices in the facilities of the Bacolod-Silay Airport to be translated into the Korean Hangul language to avoid confusion for their nationals who may not know English.

The group is also seeking the accreditation of the Bacolod Language Center Association as the official language center association of Bacolod. The Koreans informed the mayor that they are hoping that more streetlights could be installed along Lacson Street, between 6th Street and B.S. Aquino Drive for security reasons.

Lastly, they requested that a particular office be formed to assist their nationals in case of emergency, and where they can file their complaints.

In a formal letter to the Mayor, the associations' President, Oh Jae Yong said that the presence of Lee Kue Bong in the Peace and Order Committee of the Tourism Council is a manifestation of their desire to assist the city in undertakings with regards to the safety and security, not only of Korean students but also of foreign nationals visiting Bacolod.
