THE Philippine National Police (PNP) appealed again to the public not to patronize “online sabong” after the PNP discovered that some websites are still operating.
This is despite the order of President Rodrigo Duterte to close these websites down.
The PNP Directorate for Operations Director, Police Major General Val De Leon, asked the public to stop patronizing e-sabong so they won’t violate the law.
Continuing to be involved in e-sabong places their hard-earned money and earnings at risk of losing it instead of being used for the benefit of their families.
Aside from this, e-sabong has a social cost and its effect is not good for those who are addicted to it.
Meanwhile, PNP Spokesperson Police Col. Jean Fajardo assured that they will not spare anyone in their campaign against e-sabong.
She said they are continuing with their case build up and coordination with service providers to enable them to close online sabong websites that will possibly take about two weeks.
