Here Reason Why Lacson Calls For Outright End of STL
LACSON – Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson sought the outright end of PCSO-operated Small-Town Lottery (STL).
Philippine Senator and retired police officer Panfilo “Ping” Morena Lacson Sr. is one the veteran politicians in the country.
Ping Lacson said politician like Isko Moreno make him think about retiring soon. He’s glad knowing public servants like Moreno still exists.
“As long as we see the emergence of new leaders like Mayor Isko Moreno, we can look forward to retirement and continue dreaming big for our beloved country,” said Lacson.
During the Kapehan sa Senado earlier today, Lacson aired his thoughts regarding the alleged “massive corruption” at the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
Based on a report from Inquirer, Ping Lacson said abolishing the Small-Town Lottery would be better for the government. He said retired military officers and cops allegedly used dummies in their lotto outlets.
“Other information would indicate na mga retired police and military officers ang nakakakuha ng franchise. Nakapangalan lang sa mga dummies pero sila ‘yung behind,” he said.
According to the report, Lacson said these government employees should be helping the charity instead of keeping the money for themselves.
“Pagka sinabi mong dating police officer na nag-retire, alam niya ‘yung kalakaran ng jueteng. So dapat ginamit ‘yung kaalaman nila sa kalakaran ng jueteng sa mabuting paraan para matulungan ang gobyerno, matulungan ang PCSO,” he said.
Based on the report, Ping Lacson these former militaries and police allegedly do not remit their collections to PCSO. That’s the reason why he thought it’s just right if the STL will be abolished on the gaming activities.
“Pero hindi. Sa halip na mag-remit nang tama, hindi na nagre-remit… hindi naman lalabas ang pangalan nila doon. At ‘yung mga bagong franchise holders na ‘yun nga, pagaari ng mga retired [officers], hindi nagre-remit,” he said.
