Neth Savoeun, the National Police Chief of Cambodia, has ordered the Central Security Department (CSD) to hunt down operators of online gambling sites and bring them to justice.
The government issued a circular over the weekend banning all kinds of online gambling sites it said benefit money launderers, the mafia and terrorists. Most of the game operators are Chinese, according to the police.
The National Police and the Central Security Department, in collaboration with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications have blocked six online gambling websites that surfaced over the weekend. Savoeun ordered the department to search for the sources behind the games.
