Religious group asks local chief to stop 'jueteng'

by Peter Balocnit

Tabuk City, Kalinga (6 February) -- The Kalinga-Apayao Religious Sector Association (KARSA) asked the provincial leadership and municipal chief executives to put a stop on the illegal numbers game that still proliferates in the province.

In its January 22, 2010 letter to Governor Floydelia Diasen, the group requested her to create a special body that will address the problem of illegal gambling.

"We believe that illegal gambling is a peace issue which is one of the cornerstone of your administration's thrusts," KARSA told Diasen.

The letter signed by KARSA Secretary Rev. Denver Marrero and Acting Chairman Ptr. Regino Ramos strongly suggested to put the Philippine Army at the helm of the tough job.

"The military has proven its worth in the fight against illegal logging, a perennial problem in the locality for many years," the letter read.

"The ball is in your hand, Madam Governor. We firmly believe that the strongest weapon against illegal gambling is the formation of a super body", it added.

KARSA recognized the efforts of the Provincial Multi-Sectoral Forest Protection Committee created to stop illegal transport of lumber under the able leadership of the Philippine Army that headed the operations arm of the committee.

The committee successfully decimated a syndicate that smuggles narra from the mountain villages of Kalinga to Cagayan valley and then sold to rich buyers. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
