Cambodia's illegal gambling total of 10k raided

Cambodia authorities have revealed that they have raided more than 10,000 suspected illegal gambling venues and they have taken legal action against 127 of them.

National Police spokesman Lieutenant General Chhay Kim Khoeun stated late last week that the raids had taken place over the course of a month following a recent order from Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen to crackdown on all forms of illegal gambling.

And from September 15 to October 13, authorities raided the suspected locations and took legal action against 127 locations. They have collected evidence to send to court and build a case against 273 people, including 56 foreigners representing 11 nationalities.

The Lieutenant General also added that many venues had not been charged due to the lack of concrete evidence but that owners of these establishments had been required to sign contracts specifying that they would not engage in illegal gambling activities.

The Head of the Research and Advocacy Programme of the Cambodian Youth Network Association (CYN) Heng Kimhong explained the reason behind of sudden crackdown “Cambodia has had a law governing gambling for a long time, but the authorities have been unwilling to crack down on illegal gambling at all.
