'As such, there is no such blame to be shifted in this instance; the NPFI
Board and OGCC have the last say on the matter,' he added.
The justice chief, however, stressed that the termination of the Nayong Pilipino Board does not affect the implementation of the project, adding that two developments may possibly have an impact: the current reevaluation of the subject transaction by the DOJ/OGCC, and the appointment of a new board for NPFI.
Guevarra's order was in response to President Duterte's directive for the DOJ to to review the agreement forged by NPFI and Chinese firm Landing Resorts Philippines Development Corp.
Under the lease contract, the LRPDC, a subsidiary of Hong Kong's Landing International Development Ltd., will develop a $1.5-billion casino-resort in the NPFI property at the Entertainment City in Paranaque City.
NPFI spokesperson Christine Jenner said the biggest problem for parents was not knowing what to say or do with their children.
NPFI says parents are hampered from giving children good advice about issues such as drugs and alcohol because they do not know enough of the details themselves.
On Tuesday, Duterte fired all members of the NPFI board and management due to a lease deal that he called 'gravely disadvantageous' to the government.
On May 2, Maria Fema Duterte, a distant relative of the President, filed criminal and administrative complaints against her fellow NPFI board members, including chair Patricia Yvette Ocampo, before the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with Nayong Pilipino's lease contract with LRPDC.
