Advisor Brilante Inquing filed a complaint against three authorized persons from Paraniac to speed up the licensing process for several gambling and entertainment companies in exchange for a bribe. He called for the start of an investigation into officials John Ryan Ullan, Edwin Benson and Executive Assistant of the City Council Rick Villanueva on the case of violation of the Law of the Republic of 6713 and offering a bribe to the official.
According to Inving, Üllana in April tried to bribe him through Villanueva to confirm that there were no objections to the gaming company that received the license. Inquing refused this, but later received another offer of a bribe from Benson, who unsuccessfully tried to convince him to take the money and help the company.
It became known earlier that PAGCOR will temporarily suspend the process of issuing franchises for casinos in the Philippines by order of President Rodrigo Duterte.
