MANILA, Philippines — The continued operations of e-sabong or the online betting on live cockfights is now prohibited, with violators facing arrest and legal charges, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said Wednesday. 


This comes a day after President Rodrigo Duterte declared that he is putting an end to e-sabong operations, citing its social impact to Filipinos.


"Continuing to operate e-sabong at this time would be illegal so those who continue to defy the suspension of e-sabong can face arrest and can be charged in court," DILG Undersecretary and Spokesperson Jonathan Malaya said in an interview with ANC Headstart on Wednesday.
