Cambodian Court Tries South Korean Men for Illegal Online Gambling Operation

Seven South Korean nationals are being tried in a Cambodian court after being arrested for their involvement in an online gambling operation according to the Phnom Penh Post.

Chea Kimsan, chief of Siem Reap immigration police, revealed that police caught the men in the act during the raid of a villa in Svay Dangkum commune’s Kros village.

“We cooperated with the relevant authorities to arrest them while they were staying in the villa, and at the same time the online gambling website was displayed on their computer screens,” Kimsan said.

A total of 25 computers and other evidence were seized during the raid.

This year the local government announced plans to change laws in an attempt to regulate underground online gambling.

    Agreed jade, you would think that people in these kinds of countries would have far too many problems to be losing what little they do have on-line, but I guess perhaps the operations are set up mainly to try and take money from foreigners who maybe are not aware where the money is going!

    It is hard for me to think about online gambling in places like Cambodia, South Korea or Vietnam. My mind always congers up images of war, killing and devastation. I guess because most of the information I have about those places the US has been negatively involved.

    Well, they should stop or at least try to stop it at a world-wide level, illegal gambling operations are developed almost everywhere in the world, all the authorities have to work together. It is maybe a hard task, time consuming, i don't even know how rogue casinos are on the market when they don't play the players, wish there was something more to be done.
