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 fullest degree of the legislation ( or even a tad bit more).
Saycon is no ordained religious leader, but the secretary-general of the Council of Philippine Affairs. He’s apparently provided documents to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre that shows PAGCOR engaging in bribery and other unlawful practices. The allegations stem from before President Rodrigo Duterte took office.
Though Aguirre allow media outlets in the Southeast Asian country know that he certainly had been delivered documents detailing potential illicit activity, he declined to name names in the report or expand on the possible crimes. ‘I shall nevertheless need certainly to learn the documents,’ Aguirre explained.
However, in accordance with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, high-level officials into the prior administration failed to properly 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 his own appointees.
