Leader of Malaysian Illegal Gambling Operation Arrested

The supposed leader of the Klang Valley illegal online gambling operation in Malaysia is the first to be arrested as a result of new laws permitting authorities to detain people for two years without trial.

The Prevention of Crime Act (Amendment and Extension) Act 2013 deals with drug trafficking, triad activities and organized crime.

The time served can be extended for an additional two years under a detention order granted by a Prevention of Crime Board.

According to Police Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Samah Mat, the ring leader of the gambling group has been detained as “Investigations revealed that he had been operating his [online gambling] dens for about two years.”

Malaysia is taking illegal internet and mobile gambling very seriously at the moment and taking action to combat such activity.

    What country is this where the rich and powerful go to jail? But the government had a grate idea with the two years without a trial, proud of them. After two years in an Malaysia'an prison anyone confesses to all the dirty deeds that he is accused of (Discovery channel :D ). I wonder how does it feel to be a person that the government passes a law for, because let's be honest. it's not be pure luck that he was the first cu get arrested.

    Now I don't know why they have decided to use their new law to combat illegal gambling there, but I have heard that the prisons in Malaysia are no vacation spot.

    Yes. I think that the governments are restricting the online gambling because that they can't get tax for the money you won in foreign casinos. Also they want to play in "their" casinos because the possibility to lose your money are big, and if somehow you win they will get some percent of your win for tax. It's simple why they don't allow you to play online :)
