Manila Government Cracking Down on Gambling Sector

Manila Government Cracking Down on Gambling Sector This week media in Manila, Philippines accused federal law and immigration enforcement officials of wrongfully going after businesses in the online gambling sector.

According to reports, the process is simple to receive a search warrant allowing corrupt officials to raid businesses whenever they like. The majority of the raided businesses we legitimate and the appropriate licensing.

The Manila Times wrote: "National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Philippine National Police (PNP), including the Bureau of Immigration (BI), have been milking millions every month from several service providers of online gaming based in China and South Korea.”

The government is being pushed to investigate the issue and review the current procedure for granting search warrants.

Reports also reveal that the Manila customer support offices of William Hill plc was required to shut down its operations in the region as a result of an investigation by the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation.

Having been accused of illegal gambling activity, Will Hill says that its Manila office provides customer support and has done nothing wrong.
  • I'd like to see the Philippines getting a grip on all the dodgy playtech outfits that are running parts of their operation from within their borders, all this paying out progressive wins at rates that will take decades and asking UK players to send their passports and driving licenses to these dodgy Philippines offices is just bad news and should be stopped.
  • The police are beginning to be a problem everywhere. They force their authority on other people and groups of all kinds because they can. This force is illegal and pushes its way past the real laws and truth. They subject people and companies to do their bidding, but sometimes, when this force or control does not work in their favor, people die. That is the terrible injustice that is happening all over the world.
  • Oh the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation couldn't get any money from them because there customer support so they are pissed off . That's what that is all about. Looks like the only illegal doing is the police and the the people pushing the warrants out. I can't believe that these legit places are actually giving in and paying off these people. I would not do that. But I guess the just feel that this is the way things work so what the heck. But they keep doing it because there paying them off. This is outrageous. Greed Greed Greed. That is what its about over their I guess.
