As ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte last night, July 26, all betting games of the PCSO — an office which he said has long been ridden with corruption — are stopped.

A top-to-down investigation of PCSO officials and its betting games will be investigated, while the police and military have orders to ensure that all lotto stations like this one in Project 4, Quezon City, remain shut beginning today.
