Beijing to step up support of Philippines POGO crackdown

Beijing is ready to strengthen cooperation with the Philippine government as it cracks down on POGO-related illegal activity, China’s Ambassador to the Philippines, Huang Xilian, stated, grateful for the rescue of Chinese nationals. “Crimes induced by and associated with online gambling not only harm China’s interests and China-Philippines relations but also hurt the interests of the Philippines,” Beijing’s representative in the country added. “It is appreciated that relevant Philippine law enforcement agencies rescued a number of Chinese citizens and shut down some POGO companies during their recent operations,” said China’s Ambassador Huang Xilian.
