MANILA, Philippines - A Filipino allegedly operating a movie house showing obscene films in the Al-Sinaiyah district in Jeddah was arrested by Saudi authorities in a raid last month.

Saudi Arabia's Committee for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice discovered, after a concerned citizen's tip, the establishment showing pornographic movies, mostly to Filipino patrons.

Consul General Ezzedin Tago said that a "liquor factory" was also found in the area, allegedly also owned by the Filipino. The equipments were confiscated following the unidentified Filipino's arrest.

Tago warned Filipinos in Saudi Arabia to avoid engaging in illegal activities so that they may not end up in jail.

He also assured that the consulate will do its best to assist the arrested Filipino in Jeddah. - Ronaldo Concha, GMANews.TV
