The Chinese Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress has revealed it is considering an amendment that would criminalise the act of luring Chinese gamblers to overseas casinos.

It is also considering an increase in penalties for establishing casino operations within mainland China, where gambling is illegal. The Committee will carry out a second reading of the proposed amendment to China’s criminal law this week.

The move would be in line with China’s recent clampdown on capital outflows since it identified the cross-border flow of funds for gambling as a national security risk and a potential channel for money laundering.
