Police crack down on provincial gamblers

Kampong Cham provincial authorities released 37 people arrested for illegal gambling on Wednesday on the condition that they will pay a fine to the court. In court on Wednesday, officials authorised the release of all 37 after they begged to go home and asked to pay a fine rather than be detained, according to Chan Hor, provincial deputy chief of provincial justice. “We allowed them to go back home, and we did not take their money because we don’t know yet how much to fine them,” he said. Twenty-two women and 15 men were arrested on Tuesday for illegal gambling during a raid on an illicit card game.
