The Senate supports the Duterte administration’s plan to focus next on the gambling lords in the country.
According to Senator Panfilo Lacson, gambling lords are having a blast in the last six months because President Rodrigo Duterte focused his attention on its campaign against illegal drugs.
Lacson added that aside from illegal drugs, illegal gambling is the root of corruption and a source of income for other corrupt police, including local officials who are involved in the said illegal operations.
Meanwhile, Senator JV Ejercito said that as soon as the President shifts his focus on illegal gambling, there is a possibility that the outcome of it will also be successful.
Lacson and Ejercito made the said statement after Interior and Local Government Secretary Ismael Sueno confirmed that the Philippine National Police’s next target will be the gambling lords with their “Oplan Tokhang.”
