“Pacgor hereby suspends the provisional license to operate casinos and other gaming facilities issued to Travellers’ International Hotel Group Incorporated doing business under the name and style of Resorts  World Manila (RWM),” – Pagcor CEO Andrea Domingo and Chairman Alfredo Lim said in a letter sent to RWM president Kingson Sian.
