MANILA, Philippines — The Senate opened on Monday the investigation into Philippine offshore gaming operators (Pogos).

The Senate committee on ways and means hearing, presided over by Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, looked into the activities of Pogos in the country amid the alleged spate of abduction cases linked to the industry.
