Internet gambling uncovered

Seven South Korean nationals were questioned yesterday at Siem Reap Provincial Court over their alleged involvement in illegal online gambling.

Chea Kimsan, chief of Siem Reap immigration police, said the men were caught red-handed during a raid on Saturday of a villa in Svay Dangkum commune’s Kros village.

“We cooperated with the relevant authorities to arrest them while they were staying in the villa, and at the same time the online gambling website was displayed on their computer screens,” Kimsan said.

During the raid, police confiscated 25 computers, three phones, one generator, 26 bank books, six wifi modems, and other materials, he added.

Provincial prosecutor Kert Vannareth and deputy provincial prosecutor Samreth Sokhom could not be reached. Earlier this year the government announced plans to make a series of changes to gaming laws in hopes of regulating the underground online gambling scene.
