Thailand crackdown on illegal online betting operations

Recently, Thai authorities initiated a crackdown operation called “ZERO BET”. According to reports, the operation has disrupted the online gambling sphere by dismantling two illicit betting platforms.

This operation led to the seizure of cash and high-end items totaling nearly THB10 million ($270,000) in cash and goods valued at over THB60 million ($1.6 million).

Meanwhile, the government is investigating another case involving the alleged linkage between the police chief and a gambling network in the country.

Earlier last month, Thai Deputy Police Chief Surachate Hakparn reportedly faced allegations of involvement in money laundering linked to illicit online gambling networks.

The Royal Thai Police in the country declared their intention to establish a committee tasked with probing the deputy national police chief.

According to the Bangkok Post, the results of the investigation might be released by next week.
