He said that, 'when you are allowed an establishment to direct betting in a specific office, it does exclude cultivating out that establishment to different urban areas and territories because if it's like that then you can meander on following your hypothesis, you can drift on to give allows past the shores of Luzon and you can do it in Siasi, Jolo'.
