Illegal gambling should be eradicated within 15 days, PNP Chief Ronald dela Rosa ordered on Monday.
According to him, police regional and provincial directors who would fail to meet the deadline can be removed from service.
Dela Rosa’s ultimatum targets police officers who cover up operations of bookies, jueteng, swertres and other illegal gambling activities.
Philippine Charity Sweepstakes office (PCSO) recently criticized the PNP for being lenient in the execution of anti-gambling campaign which could be one of the reasons why Dela Rosa ordered the ultimatum.
