Illegal Online Casino Results in Arrest of Five Koreans

Court approved search finds illicit operations.

Somewhere on the Korean Peninsula five over-industrious Korean nationals residing in an upscale area known as Ayal Alaban Village were arrested recently for illegally operating an online gambling business. TECO (the Taipai Economic and Cultural Office) spearheaded the investigation by asking the National Bureau of Investigation, under the guidance of Director Nonnatus Rojas, to see into suspicions of potential fraud. 

On June 21 of this year the NBI National Capital Region came into possession of important information relating to this matter. It appears that several South Koreans as well as Taiwanese nationals were engaged in fraudulent telephone operations in the Ayal Alaban Village.

Court Orders Investigation

After receiving sanction from a court, a search was conducted and it was determined that the five nationals were operating illegally. 

The suspects were identified as Naryun Kim, Yunhee Hwang, Seyoung Chung, Wonseok Yang and Hoi Cherl Yang. It is believed that now the five will be charged with violation of the Presidential Decree 1602 as amended by Republic Act 9287. This particular piece of legislation was designed to increase penalties for illegal numbers games.  The men will also be charged with violation of The Access Device Regulations Act of 1988.
