Victor Chao arrested

Taiwanese-American businessman Victor Chao was arrested and is being detained at

the Prey Sar Prison on charges of possession of illegal weapons and profiting from

illegal gambling, according to a Ministry of Interior (MoI) official.

Chao, owner of the Manhattan Club and the now-defunct "War Disney" shooting

range, is under investigation and awaiting trial, according to MoI's General Sok

Phal, who declined to answer other specific questions concerning the Chao case.

According to the Khmer-language newspaper Koh Santepheap, Chao was arrested on September

14 along with 11 other foreigners in a crackdown on an illegal gambling operation.

Chao's Manhattan club has since been shut down by authorities. Sources say that Chao

will be deported, although police officials would not confirm this.
