AFP Chief of Staff General Eduardo Año said Kintanar will replace outgoing PAF chief Lt. Gen. Edgar R. Fallorina who is set to retire from the service at the age of 56.

The change of command and retirement ceremony is set to take place at 2 p.m. today (October 24, 2017) at the Haribon Hangar, Air Force City, Clark Air Base, Mabalacat City, Pampanga.

No less than President Duterte, the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, is the presiding officer.

Kintanar, who is a member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Sandiwa Class of 1985, is described by Año as a silent worker and very good at his job.

“He is a strategic thinker and also a tested and ace pilot of the Philippine Air Force,” Año said.

    OSG misled, manipulated by PAGCOR Greed

    Earlier this month, the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel, or OGCC, issued an important Opinion (sent to the Office of the Executive Secretary on 6 September 2017) which established an authoritative and resounding rebuttal of the earlier opinion issued by the Office of the Solicitor General with regard to the matter of online gaming.

    The OGCC Opinion included a scathing rebuke of PAGCOR for virtually manipulating the OSG to comply with its whim and try to support with “legal basis” its questionable and illegal Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) program, which has actually wreaked havoc and caused uncertainty and turmoil in the local online gaming industry. Last year, PAGCOR arrogated authority to itself and wrested control of the very lucrative online gaming industry from other agencies, in the process imposing steep legal license fees. Whispers and grumblings among industry players tell of steep unofficial ‘enrolment fees’ as well./

      there is always an opportunity to commit corruption and that is being proven by the greediness of pagcor officials. they are taking advantage of being an administrator to lottery and legal gambling however they are still engaging in work that they should not be doing. ,,

    • trisha hipolito

      corruption and greed goes together. this is clear in how pagcor handles its business. we should make sure that all the dealings of pagcor are legal and that there is no room for corruption and greed. pagcor officials should always be reminded that they serve the people and not the people serving them,,

      pagcor officials should be investigate. their lifestyle should be checked and if found that they are involved in corruption they should be replaced immediately. our president does not approve of corruption and they should follow the example of the president./.

      pagcor has the necessary authority and responsibility to provide government with the funds needed to support several projects. unfortunately the greed of some pagcor officials have resulted in corruption and the government not fully getting the benefits of the earnings of pagcor//

  • Kwak Kwak Kwak

    pagcor is continuously not supporting the anti corruption drive of the government and the president. it consistently tries to justify and hide its greed and corrupt acts even at the expense of some government agencies. it is clear that pagcor is trying to hide something. we should continue to pressure pagcor in to not involving in acts which they are not capable and not legally bound./

    • melaisison

      this is clearly greed on the part of pagcor and to justify that greed they are trying to get the opinion of any government agency to back them up. they are not contented on their current work but still trying to get supervision over something which is not legal and where they will not be able to regulate/

    • trisha hipolito

      online gambling is simply not in the function of pagcor and can be used to further expand their greed and their corrupt practices. we should make sure that pagcor does not abuse its authority and supervision. we should always be critical to pagcors greed and in making sure that they support our president in his anti corrupt acts,,

    • michael timbreza

      we should not give pagcor a chance in continuing their greedy acts and corrupt practices. we should continue our vigilance over the acts of pagcor in hiding and justifying their corruption. we should pressure pagcor to always be transparent and clear in all their activities

    • myca delos santos

      pagcor must be consistently reminded that they are serving the people and the government. the government is the people and they are entitled to better services. how can the government support the people and its services if the money that is supposed to go to government goes to corruption/
