Cavite Governor Offers ₱10 Million Reward for POGO Connection Proof

Posted by

Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla has offered a ₱10-million reward to anyone who can prove his ties with Philippine Offshore Gaming Operations (POGOs). 

In a statement posted on social media, Remulla denied insinuations that he and his family have been “protectors” of the business linked to several illegal activities in the Philippines.

The controversy arose after Island Cove, the clan’s former resort property in Cavite, was sold to a Filipino-Chinese businessman who subsequently converted it into an alleged POGO hub. 

Remulla clarified that the family no longer owns the property, having sold it in 2018. He emphasized that the Remulla family is not involved in any gambling or illegal activities.

In 2022, Remulla’s brother, former Representative Gilbert Remulla, was appointed as director of the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR). 

The permits for POGOs were issued by PAGCOR in 2020, and the governor asserted that his brother had no involvement in those permits. 

Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla, another sibling, ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to stop operations against POGOs after reports of “huli-dap” (arrest and extortion activities) surfaced. 

The situation remains contentious, with concerns about the impact of POGO operations on the local community and the influx of Chinese workers.

As the controversy unfolds, Governor Jonvic Remulla’s offer of a substantial reward underscores the seriousness of the allegations and the need for transparency in the POGO industry. The case continues to attract attention both locally and nationally, with implications for the broader debate on offshore gaming in the Philippines.
