Pangasinan guv cries foul over jueteng allegations

By Venus Sarmiento

Dagupan City (15 September) -- Pangasinan Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr cried foul over allegations by a mayor that 'jueteng' continues to proliferate in the province because of his tolerance of the illegal numbers game.

Espino was reacting to allegations by Alaminos City Mayor Hernani Braganza whose city is known to be jueteng-free along with the western town of Bani.

In a television interview, Espino said it is not right to put all the blame on him because his directive to the police force to stop jueteng has been consistent. He bared that reports given to him by police chiefs revealed that there were many jueteng operators and 'kubradors' who were already caught in the past years.

He said the main reason why jueteng continues to proliferate is because there are people who bet and earn their living thru the illegal game. In the province alone, Espino said there are more or less 100,000 individuals who are directly and indirectly involved in jueteng.

The governor insists, however, that he is not defending jueteng as it is "illegal, against the law and should be stopped."

Espino urged the public to stop betting for jueteng to stop its operation. He also called on the province's 47 mayors to stop jueteng and instead provide a decent job for the displaced 'kubradors' of the controversial game. (PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
