Malaysia is a country that has completely banned the gambling industry in its territory. Nevertheless, the underground sphere is still flourishing, which forces law enforcement officers to pay increased attention to the fight against illegal casinos. After conducting an investigation, which lasted several months, law enforcement officers issued arrest warrants for residents of Malaysia who were involved in the illegal organization of online casinos and gambling.

Local media reported that many of the detainees were Chinese citizens. They are suspected of providing access to illegal gambling sites, as well as European online casinos, for Malaysian citizens, although gambling is strictly prohibited for the Muslim population of the country.

The head of the Kuala Lumpur police, Datuk Lazim, said China’s intelligence agencies are not always able to control the actions of their citizens abroad. However, through joint efforts of law enforcement agencies, it is possible to identify illegal actions, stop them and bring those responsible to justice.
