Zubiri said his information came straight from the horse’ mouth.

Zubiri said no less than Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian told him at their meeting Monday (October 10) that the Philippines “is already being watched as a tourist hotspots and have been warning their countrymen of possible crimes that could happen to them.”

“What the good Ambassador meant was we could be possibly blacklisted as he mentioned they do that to countries who promote gambling for their countrymen,” he added. “The word ‘blacklist’ came from the good Ambassador and not from the Senators so truly there is a strong possibility that we are either already in the list or could be added on that list if POGOs continue to proliferate in our country,” Zubiri said.

Zubirisaid that fellow senators Robin Padilla and Win Gatchalian agreed with his statement that the Chinese ambassador was referring to a travel blacklist of the Philippines.
