Senator Nancy  Binay has slammed the involvement of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in closing down Lotto outlets in response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to stop the gaming operations of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), calling it  “OA”.

She said that locking the outlets were necessary since PCSO servers were already shutdown following the President’s order.

The senator also called out the PNP for making a  “misplaced sense of priority” instead of going after crime issues.

"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?" said Binay in a statement on Sunday, July 28.

“Sa totoo lang, offline na lahat ng lotto outlets at na-shutdown na ang main servers noong Biyernes (July 26) pa lang. Kaya, there’s no point for police operatives to padlock non-operational betting stations that are already out of business. Medyo overkill at OA (overacting) na ‘yun,” she said.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday ordered all gaming activities operated by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), which includes lotto, shut down due to alleged “massive corruption” in the said agency.

Meanwhile, the PCSO is reportedly planning to ask to President to reconsider his decision for the welfare of workers affected by the closure.
