President Rodrigo Duterte has signed the executive order that will strengthen the campaign against illegal gambling.
Last February 2, the president has signed Executive Order no.13 which aims ‘to strengthen the fight against gambling and clarify the jurisdiction and authority of concerned agencies in the regulation and licensing of gambling and online gambling facilities and other purposes’.
Under this law, the Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, Department of Interior and Local Government, and the Department of Information and Communications Technology will join force to fight gambling in the Philippines.
Prez. Duterte signed this E.O. after announcing that the fight against drugs will be temporarily suspended.
