Panel report on e-sabong probe reaches Senate plenary

The Senate’s Public Order and Dangerous Drugs Committee on Tuesday reported out to
the plenary its committee report on the disappearances of online cockfighting enthusiasts.
Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, chairperson of the panel, sponsored Committee Report 646
during the Senate’s plenary session Tuesday.

“Ang sabong, ano man ang opinyon at pagtingin ng bawat isa sa atin ay maituturing na bahagi na ng ating kultura
[Cockfighting, whatever your opinion on it is, can be considered part of our culture].
The existence of sabong in the culture of Filipinos has been around for hundreds of years.
It has made a lot of contribution not only in the entertainment of Filipinos,
but also towards the livelihood of different communities in the country.

Facebook groups promoting sabong888 operations

“We are coordinating with the Department of Information and Communication Technology
for these websites to be shut down,” said Malaya in a statement on Wednesday.
“Of the 12 websites, only 2 were registered in the Philippines
while the rest are located in other countries,” it read.

The DILG also found out that there were Facebook groups promoting e-sabong operations
and give access to users through links once interested cockfighters send them a message, Malaya said.
His agency appealed to Meta, Facebook’s parent company, to delete the pages
for online sabong since “minors are able to access the sites freely,” the official said.

“Since the mode of payment and cash-out is through GCash and other platforms,
they will also request the assistance of Globe in putting a stop to the use of
their platform for illegal purposes,” the agency’s statement read.

Some e-sabong websites operating locally have been reported

by the police to the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, he said.
Pagcor will then ask DICT to strike down the sites, he added.
“Pero ‘yung mga betting station, sarado na lahat ‘yan. At tayo ay nakikiusap
sa mga kababayan natin na huwag nang tumaya dito sa mga e-sabong na’to,” Año said.
