Senator Vs the Online Casino
The Supreme Court earlier this January unanimously declared null and
void a franchise for online gambling that was given to Sports and Games
Entertainment Corp. (SAGE) by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp.
six years ago.
The 10-page legal decision given by Associate Justice Consuelo Ynares-Santiago,
said the firm acted beyond the limits of its authority when it operated
its sports betting and Internet gaming stations.
Now Senator Robert Jaworski wants a slice of the action. I am
preparing to file charges against for defying a Supreme Court ruling
that banned online or Internet gambling in the country, said Senator
Because there is no control in one’s use of the Internet, online
gambling has victimized many children. Still many others get addicted to
it, ruining their education, added Jaworski.
