The warning came after Paulino received reports that several government employees were seen playing inside a casino along the famous entertainment strip of the city, Magsaysay drive.
“It is in our mandate as government employees to abide by the law, both local and national, and one of these laws is the ban on government employees from playing and being seen inside casino premises,” Paulino said.
“I warn each and everyone of you to please stop this kind of activity at once,” Paulino said.
He added that he had asked the casino in Olongapo to furnish him a copy of the video tapes of their CCTV for his review.
He further explained that once his office receives the tapes, upon revirew he would take appropriate action against anyone from the local government caught gambling/playing in the casino.
Meanwhile, Paulino also issued instructions for the strict implementation of curfew hours from 9:30 PM to 5:00 AM.
“Ito po ay para rin sa ikakabuti ng ating peace and order at maproteksyunan din natin ang ating mga kabataan.
