MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There will be no new casino built in Boracay despite the “provisional license” granted to a Chinese gaming firm, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said on Wednesday

In a press conference in Hong Kong, Roque said that President Rodrigo Duterte was clear in the interview he gave on Monday that he would not allow a casino in Boracay.

In addition, Roque said that when Boracay re-opens after rehabilitation, there will also be no karaoke or videoke bars.

”The President wants to restore the serenity of the beach resort, not to mention that videoke bars could be deadly for both tourists and locals.”

It has been proven that fatal shootings occur in many videoke bars in the Philippines, especially after patrons sing Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’
