Cebu City, Philippines—Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña claimed that the illegal gambling business in Cebu is protected and financed by Cebu City Police Director, Colonel Royina Garma, following the release of documents showing that Garma was allegedly involved in illegal gambling. 

Osmeña, speaking in the 888 Forum on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, said this is manifested by the violence in the city, which he claimed was perpetuated by the police. 

“Garma is the most influential police in the Philippines. I heard she is being groomed to be the next chief of PCSO (The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office),” said Osmeña

Osmeña also challenged Garma to produce a proof that she was cleared of the allegations of illegal gambling. /bmjo
