RCB: No clearance for carnivals with gambling

The month of May is affiliated as the fiesta month and because of this, carnivals or “peryas” more often sprout in certain city barangays as part of the festivities. Meanwhile, Cagayan de Oro Regulatory Compliance Board (RCB) Chairman Atty. Jose Edgardo “Egay” Uy has stated that they will no longer issue clearance to carnival operators who allow parlor games which involve gambling. This after the RCB Inspectorate Team found out gambling remains rampant in barangay carnivals which even involve minors.
