Immigration Department of Malaysia Breaks off Online Gambling Syndicate Proceed by Chinese Nationals

An online gambling syndicate run by Chinese nationals following raids at four residences, has busted by The Immigration Department of Malaysia.

A total of 16 immigration officers wallowed in the raid and nabbed 35 Chinese men and a Chinese woman, who worked as online gambling operators for the syndicate. They also nabbed a Malaysian citizen, who played the position of communications officer for the leading operator based in China. The accommodation of the detained foreigners, who are aged between 17 and 56, had been arranged by the Malaysian.

The deputy director-general of the Immigration Department (operations), Mohamad Fauzi Md Isa, said that the syndicate earned over RM10,000 per day. He also said that except for four of the foreigners held, the rest did not possess passports and had overstayed their social visit visas.

Mohamad Fauzi added:

“We seized a large number of cell phones and laptop computers at the premises. The syndicate offered gambling similar to games found in casinos and targeted Chinese, Indonesian and Malaysian players. The syndicate began its operation about five months ago. We will notify the police of the raids we conducted to enable them to take further action,”

He further mentioned that all those arrested are being held for investigations at the Putrajaya immigration detention depot.
