China diplomats warn nationals not to gamble in Cambodia

China’s embassy in Cambodia issued on Tuesday a warning to mainland-China passport holders not to take part in gambling activities in the Southeast Asia nation, after “multiple” cases recently there, of “violence” directed against Chinese; including some instances that had “resulted in deaths”.

“Looking at the recent vicious crime cases involving Chinese citizens [in Cambodia], many of those were led by gambling causes,” the embassy said in its Tuesday statement, adding the guidance amounted to a “repeated” warning.

The mission also counselled Chinese citizens against “falling into the trap” of recruitment offers by what it termed online gambling companies, luring people to work in Cambodia for “high pay”. The embassy pledged that the Chinese authorities would take sanctions against people involved in online gambling activities.
