WHEREAS, Letter of Instruction No. 717 crested the Task Force Anti-Bookies to effectively combat and prevent the existence and proliferation of illegal forms of organized gambling on amusement games;

WHEREAS, there is an urgent need to widen the coverage and scope of operation of the Task Force Anti-Bookies by initially re-naming it as Task Force Anti-Gambling, and subject to its operation, not only illegally organized gambling on amusement games but all other forms of illegal gambling;

This will not only enchances the already increased revenue collections of the government which could be substantially utilized to benefit various charitable institutions, civic projects and other development-oriented programs, but will also eliminate the pernicious effects of gambling on the social, moral and economic growth of the country;

DONE in the City of Manila, this 24th day of January, in the year of Our Lord, nineteen hundred and seventy-nine.

(Sgd.) FERDINAND E. MARCOS
President of the Philippines
