In the first month of the year, the Cambodian government conducted several operations to curb gambling, leading to the filing of 53 criminal charges and the making of 72 arrests around the country.
A representative of the Ministry of Interior said that the National Police conducted operations in fifteen provinces and municipalities, including 53 locations. 72 persons were arrested as a consequence of these investigations in 29 different locations.
Three individuals were arrested for operating an online gambling company in one location, while 69 suspects were detained for engaging in local gambling activities in 28 other locations.
Crackdowns on 24 more locations led to the arrest of 49 individuals. Authorities decided to stop the actions via agreements and instructional strategies rather than by taking legal action.
As one of his six main goals, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sar Sokha has prioritized cracking down on gambling, according to Touch Sokhak, the Ministry of Interior’s deputy spokeswoman. Thus, under the leadership of Prime Minister Dr. Hun Manet, the authorities in the seventh legislature of the Royal Government are concentrating their efforts on effectively opposing this kind of conduct.
