6 E-Sabong Sites Allegedly Still Continue Operation to Be Takedown
The Philippine National Police (PNP) will take down the six (6) e-sabong sites that still continue operation despite the orders of President Rodrigo Duterte.
According to a recent PNP statement, six active e-sabong sites have been discovered recently. Despite the fact that President Rodrigo Duterte has banned internet sabong, the operation was detected.
PNP Spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo, who is already conducting cyber patrolling of their ranks to monitor other active online cockfighting sites in the country, spoke at a press briefing. She stated that they have already found six illicit e-sabong sites in operation.
“Sa ngayon ‘yong ating PNP cybercrime units ay nagko-conduct at nagsasagawa ng cyber-patrolling, and they already identified initially anim na illegal e-sabong sites na nag-ooperate, at ngayon ay nagko-conduct na sila ng case build-up, nagrequest na sila para mai-take down ‘yong anim na initially identified e-sabong sites,” Fajardo told reporters.
She also stated that the PNP is actively building a case against the six e-sabong sites that have been identified. They have already requested that the social media providers erase the e-sabong sites, which she claims can be done in two weeks.
They are also looking into the operators of unlawful online cocks so that they can be prosecuted. President Rodrigo Duterte has approved the Department of Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) suggestion to halt the operation of e-sabong, which is blamed for the degeneration of Filipino moral standards.
This comes just over a month after Duterte justified e-sabong operations, claiming that profits from the games — estimated to be approximately P640 million per month — may assist the economy recover from the COVID-19 outbreak. Several cockfighters have gone missing, and their disappearances have been linked to e-sabong operations.
