Indonesian Immigration Authorities Bust Illegal Gambling Ring

While pursuing illegal immigrants, Indonesian immigration authorities in Bali busted an online gambling ring resulting in the arrest of 48 Chinese and Taiwanese nationals that were allegedly involved.

A spokesperson for the local immigration office spoke to the Jakarta Post saying:

“We need to investigate further regarding how they operate. So far, I am quite sure that they don’t only operate in Indonesia but also in other countries.”

The spokesperson also revealed that some of those arrested were in possession of incorrect immigration documents while several others were on tourist visas.

During the raid, authorities seized 35 laptops, a printer, 85 Wi-Fi routers, 27 mobile phones, three land phones, one CCTV system, 59 internet modems, four USBs and two memory sticks.

    It's pity that in this part of the world they have so many problems with the illegal gambling rings. LIke we see the arrested persons are not local citizens but the usual suspects Chinese and Taiwanese. It's good to know that the local Police making everything possible to bust this organizations but I guess it's very tough to them when there are so many of them.

    It is really good to see the authorities continue to have the determination to remove these illegal gambling operations online. This doesn't just remove that problem, but it is always a deterrent to those considering going into illegal gambling operation. And these guys have more problems, maybe even bigger problems than what they are being arrested for. Doesn't look like we'll have to worry about these guys going back into business for a long time. Keep up the good work......
