Cybercrime units have also processed the case buildup against six identified e-sabong sites.
They have also urged social media providers to take them down, but it will take two weeks.

The order follows the disappearance of 34 sabungeros, who are also being investigated by the authorities.
The DILG recently surveyed e-sabong operations in cities and provinces, which are blamed for the deterioration of the moral values ??of many Filipinos.
