Negros Oriental 3rd district Rep. Arnulfo Teves has revealed the aliases of the alleged “Big Four” when it comes to illegal numbers game in the province.

Teves, in a SunStar Online report, mentioned the names of “Barrera,” “Arsenio,” “Tam” and “Benny” as the alleged untouchable operators of the illegal numbers game known as swertres.

The politiko promised to bare the full names of the quartet in due time and in the proper forum.

The same report said the four are able to operate in Negros Occidental despite the presence of Small Town Lottery (STL), which is a government-regulated numbers game that’s akin to jueteng.

Teves, who is part of the pro-administration Majority bloc in the House of Representatives (HOR), called himself a supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte’s anti-illegal gambling campaign.
