One war after another, the Duterte administration is set to combat illegal gambling after illegal drugs.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said in a recent interview with reporters that this was the plan of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“I was mandated by the President to conduct an investigation and verify the status of our small time lottery,” he said.

He added that the Duterte administration had to prioritize the war on narcotics “to prevent illegal gambling syndicates from shifting to illegal drugs.”

Aguirre claimed that the instruction was issued last week following the initial salvo against illegal drugs and that the president ordered him to give a report and recommendation on illegal gambling.

As of the moment, the Department of Justice is coordinating with the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office and small time lottery operators to investigate on this issue. MJM
