PNP says 30th SEA Games remains peaceful

December 2, 2019

The Philippine National Police on Monday said the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games is still peaceful so far.

After its official opening last Saturday, Police Brigadier General Bernard Banac said there are no untoward incidents.

“So far very peaceful and we thanked the public for their continuous cooperation, showing unity and support for the Filipino athletes,” Banac said.

“There is unity and diversity. We win as one,” he added.

As of 8:24 pm, the Philippine team snatched 30 golds, 20 silvers and 13 bronze medals two days since the games officially opened at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.

The two-day gold medal haul surpassed its total output of 27 golds in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games.

In second is Vietnam with a 15-20-16 tally followed by Malaysia's 10-2-7. Ella Dionisio/DMS
