Duterte orders seizure of Jack Lam’s assets

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has greenlight the seizure of Jack Lam’ assets as payment for the alleged unpaid taxes of the Macau gambling tycoon.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that Duterte’s first order to his men – since his arrival from state visits to Singapore and Cambodia – was to recover the taxes that Lam owes for illegally operating an online gaming facility at Fontana Leisure Parks and Casino in Clark, Pampanga.

It would be recalled that immigration authorities raided the facility last month and arrested more than 1,300 illegal Chinese workers in the gambling establishment.

Quoting Internal Revenue Commissioner Cesar Dulay, the visibly irked Philippine President pointed out that “we have been cheated on for so long” by Lam.
