Inihayag ng Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC) ngayong Miyerkules na may halos 300 Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) na ilegal na nag-o-operate sa bansa.


“There are more than 300 illegal POGOs. My reading here is that all of them have their license before, but when they felt that their license won’t be renewed anymore due to violations they are committing, they decided not to reapply,” pahayag ni PAOCC Undersecretary Gilbert Cruz sa Kapihan sa Manila Bay forum.


“These entities don’t want to be regulated by Pagcor (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation),” aniya. Samantala, sinabi ni Cruz na mahirap paniwalaang hindi mapapansin ng mga lokal na pamahalaan ang mga "POGO hubs" na ito.


“It is hard to hide a POGO because there will be a lot of red flags, indicators that a certain building is involved in a POGO operation. A POGO building will be well lighted even at night, and foreigners abound the area,” paliwanag ni Cruz.


Sinabi rin niya na bagaman dayuhan ang karamihan sa nasasangkot sa operasyon ng POGO, maaaring may mga kasamang Pilipino ang ilan sa kanila.


“Some of these Filipinos are used as dummy in SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) registration [of the companies] such as President, Treasurer, the like,” ani Cruz. “These are illegal,” dagdag niya.
