If the Executive Department will not suspend or stop e-sabong, it must at least subject it to strict regulation to address its social costs, Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson said.
Lacson said the social costs of e-sabong may be intangible but will cause major problems as Filipinos – from children to policemen – become addicted to it.
“At least man lang strict regulation. Huwag 24 hours (At least subject e-sabong to strict regulation. Making sure it does not operate 24 hours would be a start),” he said at a press conference in Maddela, Quirino Wednesday.
