LEGAZPI CITY MAYOR SUPPORTS SUSPENSION OF LUCKY V’s STL OPERATION

LEGAZPI CITY (November 20) - Mayor  Noel Rosal   assured the public that the Philippine National Police (PNP) is on top of the situation amidst the violent incident that happened last week near Ayala Malls here that killed one suspect and three (3) others were wounded.


Rosal said that he is in unison with the statement of Gov. Al Francis Bichara to stop the operation of Small Town Lottery run by Lucky V Prime Gaming Corporation – a PCSO  accredited Authorized Agent Corporation  upon disclosure by the police investigators that the crime was a result of a rift between incorporators of  Lucky V.

He added that Legazpiños and Albayanos are peace loving people and the violence that occurred due to gambling war is not welcome here.

Rosal also disclosed that remittance issue must also be cleared by Lucky V because it does not tally with what is supposed to be the right sharing for LGUs from the operation of STL.  Pursuant to PCSO Board Resolution 063, s.2017 effective 2nd quarter of 2017 the following are the shares of LGUs from STL operations:  City/Municipality Share -3.00%; Congressional District Share-0.75%; Philippine National Police Share -2.50%;  and Provincial Government Share-1.00%. Earlier in a press conference, Gov. Bichara disclosed that Provincial Govt. only receive P18,000 per month instead of P75,000 while some LGUs said that they only received a measly P1,000 per month.
