High school student offered betting to fellow students

A 17-year old Tel Aviv high school student was committed to house arrest after being nabbed on suspicion of running an illegal gambling network.

Eighteen fellow students questioned in the matter allegedly gambled amounts ranging from Israel New Shekel 200 ($50) to 2 000 ($512).

In related news, a Singaporean man was jailed for three weeks and fined S$40 000 for fronting an unnamed Malaysian bookmaker.

Koh Kian Huat (39) was charged on five counts of acting as a bookie, accepting bets on various football fixtures from S$20 to S$2030 using a laptop, calculator and two mobile phones.

Huat seemingly got off lightly with Singapore laws allowing for fines between $20 000 to $200 000 and a maximum jail sentence of five years.
