MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has formalized the suspension of e-sabong operations that his predecessor, former President Rodrigo Duterte, verbally ordered but never got around to issuing a written directive for.


“There is an urgent need to reiterate the continued suspension of all e-sabong operations nationwide, clarify the scope of existing regulations, and direct relevant agencies to pursue aggressive crackdown against illegal e-sabong operations, in accordance with law,” Marcos said in Executive Order No. 9 signed Wednesday but made public Thursday.


Marcos’ order suspends live-streaming or broadcasting of live cockfights outside cockpits, cockfighting arenas or any premises where cockfights are held. It also suspends online, remote or off-cockpit betting on cockfighting matches that are streamed or broadcasted live.
