Foreign workers assured of protection

State-run Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. said foreign nationals working in IT parks that host call centers and other service providers of offshore gaming operators will be fully protected under the hub concept.

Pagcor chairman Andrea Domingo said Thursday that law enforcers would be stationed at the Philippine offshore gaming operators hubs to provide protection against any threats to foreign nationals working within these complexes.

“The POGO concept was put into implementation because we wanted to protect the foreign workers from being harassed,” Domingo said in a televised interview on ANC’s Headstart. 

“If they are in a hub together with us 24/7, they can alway lodge complaints,” she said.

Domingo said that aside from offices of Pagcor, Bureau of Internal Revenue, Bureau of Immigration and Department of Labor and Employment, the POGO hubs would have hospitals and clinics to provide health services.
