PHILIPPINES: REPORT FINDS “CLEAR LINK” BETWEEN OFFSHORE GAMBLING OPERATORS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

On 1 February, iGB reported that a report detailing links between Philippine offshore gaming operators (POGO) and crimes including prostitution and human trafficking has been presented to the country’s senate.  It quotes that report saying that “The POGO industry has exacerbated local prostitution and human trafficking. It also encouraged inbound prostitution, with the creation of ‘Chinese-only’ prostitution that made the country a destination for foreign trafficked women on a scale not seen before”.
