The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) is steadfast in its commitment to thwarting criminal activity and preserving national security. After CGC Technologies’ gaming license was recently revoked, PAGCOR took additional action by rescinding Sun Valley Clark’s provisional accreditation, another offshore gaming hub situated in Clark Freeport. This action attempts to maintain national laws and rules governing offshore gambling and stop criminal activity linked to these businesses.
Failure to Comply by Sun Valley Clark
Alejandro Tengco, Chairman and CEO of PAGCOR, stated his worries on Sun Valley’s failure to follow the nation’s offshore gaming laws. Sun Valley’s temporary accreditation will be revoked as a result, disqualifying it from receiving full accreditation in the Philippines. The company’s failure to follow the law and involvement in a number of illicit acts, such as bitcoin fraud, illegal detention, and possible linkages to human trafficking, led to PAGCOR’s judgement.
Investigation and Rescue Operation
After an interagency search on May 4, which resulted in a subsequent rescue operation, PAGCOR took action against Sun Valley Clark. The incidents involving CGC Technologies, which was present in six buildings within the hub despite PAGCOR having only allowed two of them, served as the impetus for the search. Sun Valley Clark had been suspected of being involved in illegal imprisonment, possible human trafficking, and participating in deceptive bitcoin investing practices.
The Function of the Offshore Gaming Hub
The purpose of the offshore gaming hub is to provide operational, logistical, administrative, and support services to a variety of offshore gaming operators and service suppliers. This function is performed by Sun Valley Clark. The hub includes office and residential areas as well as a wide range of amenities, including dining options, supermarkets, grocery stores, and establishments for entertainment and wellness.
PAGCOR’s Firm Stance
Chairman Tengco of PAGCOR took a firm stance, advising other offshore businesses operating in the Philippines to abstain from any illegal activity in order to keep their licenses. PAGCOR is still dedicated to promoting regulated and ethical gaming throughout the nation. While recognizing the potential financial benefits of offshore gambling, PAGCOR strongly opposes any participation in illegal activities that violate the rights of Filipinos and people of other nations.
Concern for Job Seekers
Chairman Tengco also raised concern for job seekers, particularly with regard to the possibility of human trafficking, as they look for jobs in various offshore corporations in the Philippines. He cautioned foreign nationals to use cautious when evaluating employment prospects and emphasized the significance of investigating the standing of the organizations they apply to. Individuals might be shielded from frauds and human trafficking by taking extra precautions.
PAGCOR’s Fight Against Crime
In cooperation with the Office of the President, National Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration, Department of Interior and Local Government, Philippine National Police, and other institutions, PAGCOR continues to be steadfast in its fight against crime in the Philippines. The nation’s overall objective is to make the Philippines a secure location for citizens, foreign workers, and tourists.
