Mayor Climaco shuts down operations of 2 cockpits in Zamboanga City for allowing bettors inside arena


Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has ordered the closure of two cockpits for allowing audience and bettors inside the establishments.

The cockpits, one located in Barangay Mercedes and the other one in Talon-Talon, were found to be violating the provision of Executive Order No. 614, series 2020.

The EO prohibits audience and bettors inside the cockpit arena.

Climaco said the violations were committed even as operators were much earlier informed of the specific provisions of the EO.

She said police stations in barangays are closely monitoring cockpit operations.
