Suspected gambling ring raid inconclusive

Some 50 computers and 60 boxes of playing cards were seized during a police raid at a condo housing a suspected Korean online betting ring in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district yesterday.

No arrests were made, however, during the five-hour operation in Boeung Kak II commune, police said.

Chhay Sinarith, the Ministry of Interior’s internal security director, said the apartment was not a place for online gambling, before declining to comment further.

Huoth Chanyarann, police chief of Tuol Kork district, only confirmed that the location was rented by a group of Korean men.

The raid follows two raids against internet gambling operations, which snared 114 Indonesians on September 10 and more than 70 people last week.
