Embassy urges Filipinos to remain vigilant
Manama, April 5, 2011
Filipinos have been advised to share their travel plans within Bahrain with family or friends.
The call was part of an advisory letter issued by Ambassador Corazon Yap-Bahjin, urging the community to be vigilant at all times.
'Please be vigilant at all times because you can inadvertently be at the wrong place at the wrong time,' said Yap-Bahjin. Spontaneous demonstrations and violence may still occur so everyone is reminded to always bring a cell phone with them at all times.
'You are also reminded to share travel plans with a family member or a friend.'
She also urged community members to watch Bahrain Television at 9pm everyday as announcements made by the embassy will be broadcasted by Filipino newscasters.
Meanwhile, the embassy has activated its new website, providing all the information and help to the community round the clock.
