30 Mar 2017

Malaysian governmentIn Malaysia illegal gambling has been spreading in a dangerous manner, but now the Malaysian government tries to crackdown the illegal gambling and just a few days ago completed a chain of raids, which was a part of the tries to stop unauthorised land-based betting centres and online gaming sites, arresting 39 people in the state of Sarawak. The Criminal Investigation Department chief, Datuk Dev Kumar, commented on the matter to the local newspapers:

«We conducted 20 raids on illegal 4D sellers, which resulted in the arrests of 29 individuals, and seized RM10,714 (US$2,428) and other items, such as mobile phones, portable printers, calculators and stationery. Raids were also carried out in the towns of Lawas, Limbang, Serian and Marudi for cyber gambling activities, and saw 10 individuals detained, as well as the confiscation of 40 computers, tablets and video machines, and cash amounting to RM3,440 (US$780).».

It should be mentioned though, that the latest crackdown was just a part of a very large scaled campaign the Malaysian government runs against casino, lottery and sports betting operations.
