Iran tackles online gambling operations

Home » Iran tackles online gambling operations

Iranian authorities are ramping up with their war against illegal gambling operations after the general attorney emphasized that no loopholes exist in the gambling laws of the land.

Iran News Agency (IRNA) recently quoted Chief Vahid Majid as saying that his officers disrupted nine groups which ran 61 online betting sites. The illegal sites handled wagers worth around $95.5 million.

The cyber cops stepped up their efforts recently after the IRNA stated that only five illegal betting operations were dismantled. Majid assured the public that the websites are shut down and that the leaders involved with the operations are behind bars.

Iran is a strictly Muslim nation which has laws based on Islamic theology, hence the reason why they are strongly against any and all forms of gambling.
