Subject: Re-October 2, issue of Peoples Journal titled: “NBI cracks down on Cyber Sabong”
Dear Mr. Villanueva,
Our client, www.sabongch.com, owned and operated by Pallotworld Live Video Streaming Services with Offices at L29 Nostalg Centre, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City was among several sites/Companies mentioned in the above cited subject news item operating online sabong illegally.
Our client business has been greatly affected by said news item and much to their desire to air their side on the online comment section of the story, but for some reason or another, that section of the news is inaccessible to the public, more so, there was no tag line or author of the story except indicated as “Written by People’s Journal”. Hence, we found it more proper to address this letter to you sir as Editor in Chief.
The effect of such news derogatory to our clients business entity has also taken its toll on their employees’ morale and integrity as as well as their business associates, not to mention the loss of business opportunity caused by such news report, more so that they were tagged “as one of the websites being funded by a syndicate”.
For your information, our client is servicing an online gaming operator, Strike168 Holdings Ltd., a Company based abroad which has been issued by CEZA thru (NCAGC) a Certificate of Appointment as Inter-Active Gaming Operator # 10-IGO-003 issued on September 10, 2010 valid up to September 7, 2017.
However, our client, knowing the limitation of the Inter-Active Gaming Operator permit issued by CEZA thru NCAGC and in compliance with the applicable provisions of R.A 9487 “that cockfighting is not under or regulated by PAGCOR or any other government agency except the LGU concerned, my client applied and was issued an online Gaming Authorization thru Filkor Leisure and Resorts Corporation as Master Licensor for e-Gaming under the Certificate of No Objection dated September 16,2011 of the Committee of Games and Amusement, City Government of Pasig pursuant to City Ordinance No.17 series of 2007.
Our client holds a valid Online Gaming Authorization which is valid up to September 14, 2016.
Very truly yours,
Cresencio “Boy” Marzo Jr.
