Sunday July 28,2013 : MALAYSIAN POLICE STRIKE AGAIN AT ONLINE GAMBLING
24 arrested in latest raids
The Malaysian police's "Operation Dadu" drive against online gambling continued this week with raids on six premises in the Labuan region which resulted in the arrest of 24 individuals.
Police also seized cash, documentary evidence and 79 computers during the raids, according to police spokesman Supt Adzhar Othman.
"Labuan police will give priority to efforts to combat online gambling and information from the public is very much needed to prevent online gambling from becoming rampant," he told the Bernama news agency.
Adzhar warned that the police would be collaborating with local electricity supply companies to ensure that power to the raided premises was henceforth cut off to prevent a recurrence of the offence.
Malaysian online gambling operators are becoming well known for their ability to absorb police raids and then obtain new equipment and almost immediately get back into business.
