Koreans nabbed for gambling

Siem Reap provincial police have arrested nine South Korean and four Cambodian nationals for illegal online gambling following a month-long investigation, senior provincial officials said yesterday.

The 13 men were arrested late on Saturday night, provincial police chief major general Sorth Dina told the Post.

“The suspects were preliminarily accused by police of [involvement in] an illegal gambling operation, illegal gun use and working as accomplices,” Dina said, adding that the suspects had been sent to provincial courts to be officially charged yesterday afternoon.

Among the four Cambodians, one of the men was a security guard hired to protect the Angkor Sydney Club, where the raid occurred, another was the club’s manager, and the other two were military policemen.

“I think this raid marks the first time we have cracked down and arrested Korean nationals involved in online gambling in Siem Reap province,” Dina said.
