MORE ONLINE GAMBLING BUSTS IN TAIWAN

Ten arrests in police action over 12 Taipei locations

Taiwan's Criminal Investigation Bureau's cops were active again this week in anti- online gambling operations, raiding 12 locations across central Taiwan and arresting an alleged online gambling ring leader and nine accomplices.

A spokesman for the CIB said that police raided locations in Taipei, Taichung and the counties of Taichung and Changhua after receiving tips that the ring was operating three unidentified Internet gambling Web sites and an underground gambling outlet that used sports match results and the ups and downs of indices for futures as the bases for winning or losing.

The law-enforcement officers arrested ring leader Lin Min-chi and nine members, and seized their book-keeping records and equipment, including computers, monitors and telephones.

According to the spokesman, Lin confessed that his ring has been operating the gambling outlets since 2005. An estimate based on the ring's bookkeeping records show that their monthly turnover topped NT$100 million (US$3.08 million).

Lin and his accomplices will be referred to the Taichung Public Prosecutors' Office and charged with gambling and organised crime.
