Thai and Malayan police shut down online sports betting enterprises, confiscate cash and equipment

Police in Thailand and Malaysia continued to track down and close small online sports betting operations this week, with raids taking place in both countries.

In Thailand the police in the Pattaya region busted a gang of South Koreans operating an online football gambling den in a condo on Soi Wongamart, North Pattaya.

Working in tandem with officers of the Transnational Crime Suppression Center in Chonburi, local police acted on information given to them about the gang, obtaining search warrants and raiding the luxury condo. Officers seized an unknown number of computers and other evidentce, arresting 8 people including the condo owner, Yun Su Kim.

Information in the first raid took the police to a further venue on Soi Arunothai, Central Pattaya, where another 5 people were detained.

All those detained subsequently pleaded guilty to illegal gambling offences, volunteering the information that they were brought into the venues by a South Korean countryman called Kang, who is now the subject of an on-going investigation.

In the Malaysian operations, police in the Seberang Perai Selatan area detained 35 men, suspected of being involved in online gambling activities, after raiding 11 Internet gambling premises around the region.

Seberang Perai Selatan OCPD Supt Shafien Mamat revealed that 12 employees were arrested during the raids, which were carried out with the appropriate warrants between 3pm and 9pm.

"We seized gambling materials worth about RM260,000, including 130 computers," the police spokesman told reporters in a post-raid press conference.

Shafien said urine tests on three suspects found them positive for the narcotic syabu and investigations would be carried out under Section 4B (a) Common Gaming Houses Act 1953.
