CEBU City Mayor Edgardo Labella has asked the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) to submit a weekly report on the status of the illegal small town lottery (STL) in the city.
Labella previously instructed CCPO Director Police Colonel Josefino Ligan to be relentless in stopping illegal gambling in the city.
"We should never tolerate and allow illegal gambling to take place in Cebu City," said Labella.
The reported operations of illegal STLs in Barangay Carreta prompted Labella to ask the CCPO to check the reported incident not just in Carreta but also in other barangays in the city.
Labella also previously instructed the City Legal Office to prepare necessary charges to be filed against violators.
