Online Gambling Support Center Raided in Philippines

Online Gambling Support Center Raided in Philippines Philippines Bureau of Immigration raided an online gambling support center located in Pasay City last week arresting 191 Chinese individuals for their involvement in illegal immigration offences. Authorities released 22 under suspicious circumstances prior to arriving at the immigration offices.

The release of the 22 suspects has launched an investigation on the immigration officers ordered by Immigration Commissioner Siegfred Mison.

“At least 21 of those released without authority claimed to possess Cagayan Economic Zone Authority special visas (CEZA visas) while one appeared to be unaccounted, or missing,” BI spokesperson Elaine Tan said.

“CEZA visas are company and station-specific. Mere possession of this particular visa does not automatically absolve the holder of any liability under immigration laws. The company and the place of work must still be established in order to validate that the visa is legitimately used,” she said.

There were 14 among those arrested that were eventually released upon providing valid visas.

“This matter is taken very seriously by the Commissioner. He has ordered the concerned officers to submit a written explanation on the discrepancies in the number of apprehended subjects,” Tan said.
  • So, you need to be from a different country to provide support for an online casino. But, I thought that the support people I spoke to came from France. I know, the French went to China to work and were transferred to the Philippines because of their expertise in support rudeness. I didn't know that support centers were separate from the rest of the casino. Guess they don't want that to rub off on the rest of the crew.....
  • That had shady written all over it . Its hard enough with the rules , laws and scrutiny casinos have on them , they should have known this was coming . A red flag to any other support centers . Seems casinos are really under all types of magnifying glasses now , if the want to profit and flourish legitly they better adhere by all the rules .
  • Ok is this why there is no support in a few of the casinos I play at....haha. but seriously...i hope some of the people arressted were among the rude support i received. wishful thinking. :)
  • Yikes! Sounds like they have a lot of problems within to resolve before they begin to use their authority else where...
