Alleged illegal gambling investigation keeps going

Police yesterday continued to question 114 Indonesians ar­­rested in Phnom Penh on Mon­day for their suspected involve­ment in an illegal football-bet­ting ring, officials said.

Hy Prou, Phnom Penh Municipal deputy police chief in charge of the Im­­migration Department, said po­­lice were working with Phnom Penh Municipal Court’s pros­ec­utor to build a case. “Based on preliminary evidence, [the suspects] were illegally gamb­ling online,” he said. “We will wait for the decision of our superior with regards to what happens next.”

An Indonesian Embassy spokesman said he was aware of the arrests but said charges were yet to be laid.
