DAGUPAN CITY – In a mockery of the directive of the Philippines Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), betting agents of the illegal Peryahan ng Bayan (PnB) continue to peddle the numbers’ betting game in this city and many cities and towns in Pangasinan.

“We are untouchables. Even the so called raid on our betting station in Barangay Tapuac was not a raid. The authorities and stakeholders only visited us there,” a cobrador or betting agent with his papelitos here told Saturday this newspaper.

The source, who asked for anonymity, said that PNB continues to trade in many towns and cities in the province.

PCSO Chairman Anselmo  Simeon P. Pinili furnished last February 16, 2019 the National Bureau of Investigation Director Dante A. Gierran a letter to President Rodrigo Duterte on the illegal and unauthorized operations of Globaltech Mobile Online Corporation’s (Globabltech) PnB  that has been adversely affecting the operations of PCSO’s Small Town Lottery Authorized (STL) Agents.

 Pinili told NBI Director Gierran that per Section 1 of Executive Order No. 13 provides “the police, the NBI and other law enforcement agencies are hereby ordered to intensify the fight against illegal gambling in coordination with concerned agencies like the Departments of Justice, Interior & Local Government, and Information & Communications Technology”.

PCSO General Manager Alexander F. Balutan said the franchise of Globatech to operate PNB in various provinces were terminated last February 17, 2016.

“The termination of this Deed of Authority is subject of Civil Case No. 75149 between Globaltech and PCSO pending before the the Regional Trial Court of Pasig City, Branch 161. The said  Court issued an Order dated 13 October 2017 in Civil Case No. 75149 denying Globaltech’s application of Writ of Injunction,” Balutan stressed the denial because the parties were directed to arbitrate pursuant to the Special Rules of Court on Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Recently, the new leadership of the Speedgame, Inc (SGI) under President David Diciano complained that its rival faction in Pangasinan still operates despite a letter sent to them by PCSO General Manager Balutan.

In his February 1, 2019 letter, Balutan told former SGI former president Edward Aguilar that he was operating Speed Game, Inc. without the proper authorization from the company’s stockholders and President Diciano.

“You are therefore directed by this office to  immediately stop further operating Speedgame, Inc. activities in connection with our Small Town Lottery or STL,” Balutan told Aguilar.

Balutan, a retired military general, exhorted the full cooperation of Regional Director, Police Regional Office – 1 P/CSupt. Romulo E. Sapitula and Pangasinan Police Provincial Director P/SSupt. Wilson Lopez to stop Mr. Aguilar’s illegal operation of the numbers game in the four cities and 44 towns of the province at the expense of the majority stockholders of the corporation.
