Malaysia Government to review legislations to curb online gambling

The Home and Finance Ministries will carry out a review to improve legislations to curb online gambling activities.

Deputy Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Ismail Mohamed Said (Barisan Nasional – Kuala Krau) said the review will ensure laws related to gambling remain relevant following the change in modus operandi among gambling syndicates.

“The ministry is also involved in the review to improve laws related to gambling which is being carried out by the Finance Ministry,” he said when replying to a question by Noorita Dual (Pakatan Harapan – Tenom) in the Dewan Rakyat.

Noorita had asked the government to state measures and legal actions taken to curb and combat online gambling which has become increasingly rampant .

Ismail said 2,165 people have been prosecuted for their involvement in online gambling activities this year compared to 2,911 people last year and 2,294 in 2019.

“The police are constantly monitoring the situation and continuously carrying out operations to eradicate this issue.

“The police have also adopted several measures to bust such activities irrespective if it is being operated by an individual or syndicate,” he said.

Among the operations carried out by the police to eradicate the problem include Ops Dadu as well as integrated operations together with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and local authorities.
