Police On The Look Out For Illegal Betting

Last week Malaysian authorities detained ten people next to Kuala Lumpur at an Internet Cafe also arresting the cafe 180's owner, for accumulating illegal bets made on the World Cup.

Given that the World Cup Began on May 31, bets wagered at the cafe have added up to $6,000. Authorities entered, seizing detailed papers holding information on betting activities and a World Cup timetable of games along with a fax machine and television.

In any case, Anyone charged and found guilty of illegal betting would suffer the consequences and face Malaysian law with fines over $52,000 or will be sentenced to five years in prison. Even though betting is illegal in Malaysia, apparently illegal betting on the English Premier League and Home soccer Games is still going on and has been growing for quite some time.
