President Rodrigo Duterte has asked gambling operators to avoid involvement in corrupt activities even as he encouraged them to continue doing business in the country.

In a speech during the launch of Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation’s (PAGCOR) Game On! All In! for Nation Building Thursday (January 11), Duterte said he has no problem if gambling operators “keep the money coming.”

“I thank you for the income that we are earning from the gambling community. Ang akin lang is I want to stress again the point that you can come in, expand, do business peacefully but please avoid graft and corruption whether you are the giver or the receiver,” he said.

Duterte said gambling operators can call PAGCOR chairperson Andrea Domingo or other government officials to report instances of extortion and he “will take care of it.”

“Kung may problema ka even in the locals, huwag kang magbigay. Kasi kung magkaalaman tayo, it will just sour up our relationship,” he said.

“All I have to do is for you to cooperate and I said do not give in to extortionist. Be it the police, the BIR, Customs, kasi ‘pag malaman ko, I’ll make it hard for you,” he added.

Duterte said he will fire the chairperson of another government agency and over four dozen policemen soon over allegations of corruption.
