Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald dela Rosa is intensifying the campaign against illegal gaming.
In a speech on Monday morning at the PNP Headquarters in Camp Crame, Dela Rosa said, he is declaring an “all-out war against illegal gambling.”
“The PNP will continue to hit all forms of illegal gambling,” he stressed.
He noted that illegal online games are included in the drive.
He said he received his instruction from President Rodrigo Duterte, through Executive Order (EO) Number 13 which the Chief Executive just signed.
EO Number 13 directs the PNP and the National Bureau of Investigation to stop all kinds of illegal betting, with the help of the Department of Justice and the Department of Interior and Local Government.
