Mayor Bongat chides CIDG over ‘jueteng’ in Naga City

NAGA CITY –“Do your homework,” City Mayor John Bongat hit back at Police Chief Supt. Bernard Lao, head of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Camarines Sur in response to intelligence reports that jueteng is rampant here.

The CIDG over the weekend said that they are currently verifying reports on the possibility that bookies of the illegal numbers game are operating in this city.

Bongat, in a statement to the media, said Lao should do his job of arresting the people who are allegedly involved in the illegal activities.

Arresting them is the best way to eradicate the gambling activities, Bongat said.

The city chief executive pointed out that since his assumption to office, he has had a standing order to the police to apprehend all persons involved in jueteng.

“I have made myself clear regarding this matter to all police officers assigned in this city. I will not tolerate gambling activities here,” Bongat stressed.

In a related interview, Philippine National Police City Director Narciso Domingo confirmed that they are monitoring the jueteng bet collectors that have infiltrated this city.

Apart from jueteng corriadores, bet collectors for Small Town Lottery (STL) operations which are rampant and tolerated in some nearby towns have been collecting bets in some barangays, Domingo said.

The city director added that some collectors of the illegal numbers games frequent the different barangays of this city. However, the lottery is probably held in the adjacent towns.

Domingo confirmed that they have assigned more police officers to enforce the law on the illegal numbers game.

Just last week, Domingo told the media that several bet collectors engaged in the illegal activities have been arrested and charged with violation of the law on gambling.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
