The Philippines made the first steps in fighting against illegal gambling operators. The President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte signed the bill about the activity of gambling companies. And, according to his decree, a special inter-agency group was created. The main aim of its work is to fight against gambling operators that don’t have license.

The group includes representatives from the National Police, the Department of internal affairs and local regulation, the Department of information and communication technologies, the National Bureau of Investigations.

According to the new law, only those gambling companies that have received a license from the local regulator have a right to work on the territory of the country. Rodrigo Duterte says that illegal gambling contributes to flourishing corruption and can be regarded as a social threat.
