PCSO gaming ban to stay until end of gov’t probe
The prohibition on all gaming plans of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) will remain until the administration completes its examination concerning asserted debasement inside the state gaming controller, Malacañang said Monday.
President Rodrigo Duterte will identify all characters engaged with the monstrous debasement inside the PCSO “in due time,” his representative Salvador Panelo said.
“Sa ngayon kasi sabi nga ni Presidente iniimbistigahan niyang maigi. I-recognize niya lahat. Until such time na hindi dad natatapos yung imbestigasyon, sarado muna ‘yan,” Panelo said
(At this moment, the President said he will research it altogether. He will distinguish everybody. Until such time that the examination is finished up, those stores will stay shut.)

The PCSO in the mean time guaranteed the Palace that it will keep on following President Duterte’ suspension request until further notice.
“The PCSO bolsters the choice of our dear President in killing defilement and unlawful betting exercises. The Agency projects, undertakings, and exercises are adjusted [with] the goal and objective of our national government,” it said in an announcement Monday.
More than 21,000 lotto outlets and other PCSO gaming stands have been closed down across the nation after President Duterte pronounced these as illicit.

Panelo uncovered that before Duterte’s PCSO conclusion request last Friday, the CEO initially met with its recently introduced general administrator, Royina Garma.
Asked on to what extent PCSO amusements will stay suspended, Panelo did not give a positive timetable but rather guaranteed Filipinos of a quick test.
“Si Presidente naman mabilis, kita mo mabilis ang request niyang ipasarado,” he said.
(The President demonstrations quick. He requested the conclusion quickly.)
The PCSO is an administration claimed and controlled partnership under the Office of the President which is entrusted to raise and give assets to wellbeing programs.
