Cambodia’s communications watchdog has blocked 79 websites it says were offering illegal online gambling services in Cambodia.
In a statement, the Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia said it had worked with the National Police General Commission of the Ministry of Interior to block the sites, which contravene the nation’s Royal Government Directive No. 07. August 18, 2019 on “strengthening the management of all kinds and all aspects of gambling through electronic machine business via internet inside and outside of the Kingdom of Cambodia.”
Such actions, it added, “affect security and public order in society.”
