Lawyer Lectures VP Leni After Remarks on POGO Online Gaming

Prominent lawyer and defender of Pres. Rody Duterte on social media, Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles lectured Vice President Leni Robredo on her alleged off the mark remarks regarding the Chinese-operated POGO Online Gaming operations in the country.

VP Leni Robredo wondered about the operation of POGO (Philippine Offshore Gambling Operation) in the country involving Chinese nationals, why they persist when Pres. Duterte has already ordered the shut down of all gambling operations in the country, including the revocation of permits.

The Vice President also reckoned that offshore online gaming is already illegal in China, so why they come to the Philippines to operate.

VP Leni was quoted as saying "Iyong sa akin lang... 'di ba, hininto nga natin iyong ating mga gambling, iyong mga permits, bakit sila pinapayagan?" Robredo said.

"Tapos iligal sa kanila kaya pumupunta dito. Kung iligal sa kanila, bakit tayo iyong nagha-house? 'Di ba?"

The statement of the Vice President was ridiculed by netizens particularly Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles who demolished VP Leni's statement on Facebook.

Atty. Angeles explained to the Vice President that it was the PCSO who ordered the suspension of all gaming except lotto. Angeles added further that it's the law that determines what is legal or illegal. The lawyer noted that POGO is under PAGCOR, not PCSO.

Read the Complete Statement of Atty. Angeles:

Madame. PCSO po ang nagpa suspendi ng gaming except lotto. Batas po ang nagdedetermine kung ano ang legal o hindi.

Ang mga Philipine offshore gaming operators o POGO ay under sa PAGCOR.

Also, ang iligal po sa China, hindi necessarily iligal dito. At, walang kinalaman yan sa pag house o pag regulate kung saan ang residences ng mga Chinese workers ng mga POGO dito.

Naman si Madame.
