- Mocha Uson allegedly flouts the ban on government employees in visiting casinos.
- Promotional posters have Mocha Uson’s gig inside the Resorts World Manila bar.
It looks like Mocha Uson, Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary, is on a hot seat again for not following the ban on government employees from being seen inside casinos. The promotional posters and videos of Uson’s gigs inside the Resorts World Manila bar spread on social media and they are questioning now, if she is openly disobeying the said ban.
Based on the website of Resorts World Manila, Mocha Uson performs in Bar 360 every Tuesday from 10 to 11 PM.
“The Mocha Girls regularly perform at various venues around the metro, and have also toured internationally including cities in the Middle East and Asia with their lead vocalist, Mocha Uson, together with Franz Faisan, Georgina Knight, and Seika Hashizume,” the website said.
The Management, in a separate statement, said that they have reminded all the entertainers that they should comply with the rules and regulations of RWM.
In a report published on Rappler, Andanar said that Mocha can still perform if she wishes but he would discourage her from performing in places like casinos.
Government officials who are directly connected in the operation of the government or its attached agencies are prohibited to play inside the casino. This is under PD No. 1067-B (series of 1977) and amended by PD No. 1869.
The wording may have indicated that the prohibition is on actual gambling; there were succeeding memorandum circulars that stated the ban on government employees from entering the casinos.
Under the authority of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea issued the latest memorandum reminding government employees to “strictly observe and comply with all pertinent laws, issuances and policies prohibiting government personnel to enter, stay or play in gambling casinos.
As of this posting, MOCHA USON BLOG on Facebook remains quiet about this issue.
