MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang yesterday asked Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) board member Sandra Cam to file charges against the friends of President Duterte who are allegedly not remitting small-town lottery (STL) revenues to the government. 

Cam claimed in a recent radio interview that several STL operators who are friends of Duterte are not remitting STL proceeds to PCSO. She declined to name the operators but claimed she has documents to back her accusation. 

“Our position always is: if you have any complaint against any particular employee or any person relative to the commission of any crime, violation of laws… then file, make a formal complaint,” presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a press briefing. 

Cam, in a television interview yesterday, said PCSO board chairman Anselmo Pinili and other top officials should tender a courtesy resignation to allow the Preident to cleanse the PCSO.

She said she cannot resign because the President directly ordered her to stay at her post several weeks ago.

Last month, Duterte suspended PCSO’s gaming operations, including STL, due to what he described as “massive corruption” in the agency. 

He has allowed lotto operations to resume but retained the ban on STL, Peryahan ng Bayan and Keno.
