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.
