Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur Police Busts International Gambling Syndicate, 49 Chinese Arrested

Police in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur has busted an international online gambling syndicate arresting 49 Chinese nationals. 

The online gambling syndicate was targeting customers from mainland China, where gambling is illegal. 

The police have confirmed that the ‘Apang’ syndicate from China had been operating for a month from a house in Jalan Metro Perdana Barat in Kepong. The premises were used as the hub for operating illegal online gambling operations. 

City police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said that a team conducted the raid on the house on Monday night. The team comprised officers from the anti-vice, gaming, and secret society from Sentul.

Talking to the press, the police chief said: “We arrested 46 men and three women from China, aged between 19 and 52. The house was the call center offering gambling services over the past month.”

Mazlan also confirmed that 48 laptops, 67 handphones, and accessories worth RM100,000 had been confiscated. 

“The group used WeChat to target Chinese citizens.

“Winners get their winnings transferred to their bank accounts. We are still investigating if this has been offered to Malaysians as well,” he said.

Earlier last week, police arrested 9 locals in a raid on an illegal gambling ring on Monday.
