The request for SB Endorsement of Boracay New Coast Hotel Group Inc. to operate Casino and Entertainment Business in the Boracay is now rolling on the Sangguniang Bayan of Malay.
In the 13th Regular SB Session of Malay, Tuesday, the matter was discussed in a Committee Report led by SB Member Rowen Aguirre.
According to Aguirre “a committee hearing has been conducted which was attended by the News Coast Management and Vice Chairman of the Committee on Tourism Leal Gelito”.
Aguirre added that New Coast stressed that the Casino games are only for their hotel guests and for foreign tourist.
He also justified that New Coast assured the legality of the Casino’s operation, and it will be licensed by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Authority and the Philippine Navy.
Meanwhile the said matter was scheduled for second reading during the next regular session of SB Malay for further study.
