IBINASURA ng Korte Suprema ang reklamo ng Philippine Gaming Management Corporation (PGMC) hingil sa multi-billion online lottery project ng Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).

“Finally, the High Tribunal allowed PCSO to proceed with the public bidding for the Nationwide Online Lottery System in Luzon,” pahayag ni PCSO General Manager Alexander Balutan.

Nabinbin ang pagpapatupad ng P10.9-billion project ng PCSO bunsod ng naturang isyu.

“Premises considered, the petition is granted. The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes may proceed with the bidding process for NOLS for Luzon,” pahayag ng SC sa 20-page decision na nilagdaan ni Associate Justice Marvic Leonen.

Pinagbigyan din ng SC 3rd Division ang kahilingan ng pamahalaan na isantabi ang ‘writ of preliminary injunction’ (WPI) na iniyu ni Makati City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 143 Judge Maximo de Leon noong Agosto 3, 2017.

“This court finds that the Regional Trial Court committed grave abuse of discretion in granting respondent Philippine Gaming Management Corporation (PGMC) application for injunctive relief. A Writ of Preliminary Injunction is issued to ‘prevent threatened or continuous irremediable injury to some of the parties before their claims can be thoroughly studied and adjucated,” pahayag sa naturang desisyon.
