15 Chinese nationals arrested in Pasig

The presidentially-driven initiative against illegal online gambling operators in the Philippines continued Monday with the arrest in a police raid in Pasig of 15 Chinese and one Filipino national.
Philippine National Police spokesman Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos said agents of the Anti-Cybercrime Group served a search warrant on YD International Inc., at the 18th floor of the Belvedere tower on San Miguel Ave., on Monday night and then searched the premises.
The raiding team seized computers, mobile phones, tablets, Chinese ATM cards, passports and identification cards, he revealed.
In related news The Manila Times reported police general Ronald Dela Rosa has revealed that his personnel are currently investigating an unnamed police general for receiving bribes from illegal gambling interests.
Dela Rosa said that the PNP’s Counter-Intelligence Task Force (CITF) started an inquiry after receiving a complaint, and that a task force led by Senior Supt. Jose Chiquito Malayo is looking into the allegations.
“This is pertaining to collection of gambling payola but it is being confirmed,” Dela Rosa said, warning police officers who are protecting gambling lords that they will be targeted by the CITF.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
