MANILA, Aug 28 (Reuters) – Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has lifted a moratorium on casino operations in the country’s top holiday island to generate taxes for its COVID-19 pandemic response, the presidential spokesperson said on Saturday.

Like with Siri, the app will also offer links and resources if needed.

Other companies do actively search for such photos and videos. Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and Google (and its YouTube subsidiary) all use various technologies to scan their systems for any potentially illegal uploads.

At the same time, the company has also been buffeted by the pandemic, with its cash cow Melbourne property shut for nearly half of the year due to COVID lockdowns and gaming activities repeatedly suspended at the Perth and UK casinos.

They have also weighed heavily on its results, with corporate costs spiralling to $111.6 million, on the back of higher legal and compliance expenses associated with the various inquiries, and higher insurance premiums.
