‘Waste of time’ lamented

SENATOR Nancy Binay urged the Philippine National Police to stop wasting man hours and resources in closing down lotto outlets and instead redirect their energies to more important police matters.

According to Binay, something is off track with the PNP’s order to launch a nationwide crackdown against STL collectors and closure of lotto betting stations.

“Instead of wasting their time in closing down lotto outlets, bakit di nila pagdiskitahan habulin at hulihin ang mga nasa wanted list nila, o yung mga insidente ng patayan sa Negros? Mobilizing the police force to quell gambling activities over investigating deaths of unarmed civilians only shows the PNP’s misplaced sense of priority,” the senator pointed out.
