are gambling financiers'


Two prominent personalities, believed to be the financiers of illegal gambling operations in Negros Occidental, are on the police watch list, Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, Negros Occidental police director, said yesterday.

However, de la Paz said he could not reveal their names as they are still building cases against them.

“When we have sufficient evidence to file cases, we can reveal the names of these ‘big fish' who continue to defy the order to stop illegal gambling operations,” he added.moremoremore
