Seventeen persons will face charges in courts over their involvement in the alleged 2019 game-fixing at the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL), the Office of the Prosecutor General (OPG) said on Friday (April 16).

OPG spokesperson Prosecution Atty. Honey Delgado said Assistant State Prosecutor Maria Khristina Salumbides has issued a resolution on the complaint filed in November 2019 by MBPL Commissioner Kenneth Duremdes at the instruction of MPBL founder Sen. Manny Pacquiao.

Those to be charged for game-fixing in violation of Presidential Decree (PD) 1602 in relation to PD 483 are SOCCKSARGEN Marlins team coach Fedinand Melocoton with four counts and basketball players Jake Diwa, 14 counts; Exequiel Biteng, 13 counts; Jerome Juanico, 14 counts; Matthew Bernabe, 12 counts; Julio Magbanua, 10 counts; Abraham Santos, 10 counts; John Patrick Rabe, seven counts; Ryan Regalado, nne counts; Janus Lozada, one count; Ricky Morillo, one count; and Joshua Alcober, one count.

Also to be charged was Quezon City Capitals coaching staff member Serafin Matias with seven counts of game-fixing; Sonny Uy, nine counts; Mr. Sung, 14 counts; Kein, three counts; and Emma , one count.

“Filing as soon as possible,” Delgado said.

“Naapektuhan lang ng pandemic, skeleton workforce kasi tayo ngayon,” she noted.

The case was filed before the Department of Justice (DOJ) in 2019 after Pacquiao suspended the SOCCKSARGEN Marlins team from participating in the MPBL following the discovery that game-fixing have allegedly been taking place.
