If one follows Senator Miriam Santiago, “DILG+PNP = Jueteng” is an important formula. Here is a snippet of her privilege speech, which she gave before the Philippine Senate on 22 September 2010.
The equation DILG + PNP = Jueteng means that illegal jueteng consists of a conspiracy between the interior secretary and the police chief. They are the prime beneficiaries and ultimate protectors of jueteng. If we as a people do not rouse ourselves from our stupor, someday the Philippine president will be elected on the basis of who gets the biggest jueteng contribution.
