PHILIPPINE police on Monday said it found links between Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) hubs in Bamban, Tarlac and Porac, Pampanga.

“We have seen connections between the Bamban and Porac POGOs,” Leo M. Francisco director of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), told a virtual news briefing on Monday. “Those documents are still being studied and aside from that, we’re in the process of applying for computer data seizure warrant.”

During the briefing, Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin C. Abalos, Jr. said there are only two licensed POGO hubs in the country — one in Metro Manila and the other in Kawit, Cavite.

The public should report suspicious operations resembling POGO compounds outside the capital region and Kawit, he added.

Early this month, police raided the POGO operated by Lucky South 99 Corp. in Porac for alleged worker torture and scams.

In March, a Bamban POGO operated by Zun Yuan Technology, Inc. was shut down for alleged scams and human trafficking. — Chloe Mari A. Hufana
