‘Hindi dapat balewalain’: Jinggoy calls for deeper probe on ‘PLA uniforms’ in POGO raid

(POLITIKO) Senate President Pro Tempore Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada believes that the Chinese military uniforms found at a raided Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) is added proof of the scams being conducted by the facility.

“Whether genuine or mere props, the pieces of alleged People’s Liberation Army (PLA) uniforms found in the raided POGO hub in Porac, Pampanga serve as a strong indication that the extent of scams perpetrated by these unscrupulous individuals is beyond comprehension,” he said.

“Authorities investigating this POGO hub should thoroughly examine the extent of operations carried out by the suspected criminal syndicates associated with Lucky South Outsourcing Inc.,” the lawmaker added.

With this, the senator urged law enforcement authorities should also find out what these uniforms were being used for.

“Anong klaseng online scam ang nangangailangan ng props gamit ang uniporme ng PLA? Tanging Chinese nationals lamang ang nakakakilala ng Chinese military uniforms dahil batid naman siguro ng marami nating mga kababayan ang gamit ng mga miyembro ng sangay ng ating Armed Forces of the Philippines,” Estrada said.

“Hindi dapat balewalain ito ng ating awtoridad, peke man o hindi ang mga unipormeng ito. Mas dapat alamin kung saan ito ginagamit,” he pointed out.
