Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Instructs National Police to Stop Illegal Gambling

Controversial Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has instructed his police force to come up with a plan to stop illegal gambling in the country. Mr. Duterte has a zero-tolerance policy for cracking down on the use of illegal narcotics and it appears his number 2 nemesis is illegal gambling in his country doing a complete about face on his initial proclamation “Pay your taxes, and gamble until you die” I don’t really care.

Recently he has ordered the National Police to work along side the Philippines Charity Sweepstakes Office to rid the country of corrupt gambling. The Philippines has 18 licensed gambling entities in the country and they will be targeting unregistered agencies that offer games of chance.

It appears that although President Duterte will be willing to give these entities due process in court which is something he hasn’t done with the illegal drug trade.
