The Philip­pine Char­ity Sweep­stakes Of­fice has lauded the Na­tional Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion for clos­ing six il­le­gal bet­ting sta­tions in Cen­tral Visayas.

PCSO Chair­per­son Jose Jorge Cor­puz said the NBI Cen­tral Visayas raided six il­le­gal bet­ting sta­tions of the “Perya­han ng Bayan” in Cebu and Man­daue cities on Septem­ber 11.

Dur­ing the raid, he said, six em­ploy­ees of Global tech Mo­bile On­line Corp. who served as col­lec­tors and main­tain­ers were nabbed.

“The PCSO would like to con­grat­u­late NBI Cen­tral Visayas Re­gional Of­fice over the ar­rest of six col­lec­tors and main­tain­ers of the ‘Perya­han ng Bayan’ in Cen­tral Visayas,” Cor­puz said in a state­ment.

The raid was con­ducted af­ter the NBI re­ceived com­plaints from First Golden For­tune Leisure Inc. and Saturn Gam­ing N’ Amuse­ment Corp., both Au­tho­rized Agent Cor­po­ra­tions of the PCSO on the il­le­gal op­er­a­tions of the Perya­han ng Bayan near Small Town Lot­tery sta­tions.

Cor­puz said that the Perya­han ng Bayan has no au­tho­riza­tion from PCSO to op­er­ate as its Deed of Au­tho­riza­tion has been ter­mi­nated due to its re­fusal to re­mit rev­enues to the gov­ern­ment last year. (Jel San­tos)
