MANILA –- The Philippine National Police (PNP) will train its next campaign on illegal gambling, its chief Dir. Gen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said Tuesday.
Dela Rosa said that once the PNP is done with the war on drugs, it will target illegal gambling, which he said must be eradicated as well, especially the politicians and policemen behind it.
Illegal gambling is comparable to illegal drugs, he said, adding that if there are “narco-politicians”, there are also “gambling politicians”.
He disclosed that he was once offered a big sum of money by some gambling lords, but he refused it because he knew it was in exchange for some illegal activities.
He said he can never be bribed by gambling lords because his salary as PNP chief is sufficient enough.
Dela Rosa warned that once the campaign on illegal gambling starts, he does not care whoever will be affected. PNA/northboundasia.com
