PAGCOR, the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation, is being accused of corruption after Pastor Boy Saycon turned over evidence to the country’s Department of Justice.
If Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is convinced former PAGCOR officials engaged in graft, he’ll likely pursue the ousted gaming officials to the extent that is fullest regarding the legislation ( or maybe a bit more).
Saycon is no ordained leader that is religious but the secretary-general of the Council of Philippine Affairs. He’s reportedly provided documents to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre that shows engaging that is PAGCOR bribery and other unlawful techniques. The allegations stem from before President Rodrigo Duterte took workplace.
Though Aguirre let news outlets in the Southeast Asian nation understand he refused to name names in the report or expand on the potential crimes that he indeed had been delivered documents detailing potential illicit activity. ‘I will still need certainly to study the documents,’ Aguirre explained.
However, based on the Philippine Daily Inquirer, high-level officials within the administration that is prior to precisely disclose contributions and expenditures.
PAGCOR is a federal agency that is beneath the president’s oversight. Upon taking control of the united states in July, Duterte replaced the five-member board with their very own appointees.
