China Investigated More Than 17,000 Cross-border Gambling Cases Last Year

China’s Ministry of Public Security has recently stated it has investigated more than 17,000 cross-border gambling cases in 2021.

According to statements, more than 80,000 suspects have been detained while 2200 online gambling platforms were shut down.

The ministry stated: “Domestic crackdown actions on customer solicitation networks, money laundering activities and illicit financing channels used by large-size overseas gambling groups were successful.

“All endeavours will be made to resolutely deter cross-border gambling and eradicate the breeding ground for cross-border gambling.”

From March 1, 2021, China’s revised Criminal Law made it illegal for anyone who assists in cross-border gambling.

Before the entry into force of the new code, the three mainland law enforcement agencies issued a joint statement in early February last year, calling on individuals to surrender or assist in judicial investigations of cross-border gambling activities.

The authorities said at the time that in return they would consider lenient treatment when dealing with such issues.

The Ministry of Public Security of China pointed out that more than 1100 suspects whether in mainland China or elsewhere-had “surrendered” to the Chinese authorities regarding cross-border gambling crimes.

Last June, new measures to fight cross-border gambling were also announced by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).

A group of citizens in Wakayama city called the “Wakayama Resident’s Group for Questioning the IR Bid” submitted a petition to Mayor Masahiro Obana on Friday containing 20,039 signatures and demanding a referendum regarding the city’s planned IR bid. The city accepted the petition.

The number of signatures accounts for approximately 6.5% of the city’s voting population and far exceeds the 2%, or 6200 signatures, required to take such action.

Upon direct acceptance by the city, Mayor Obana must call a city council meeting by 26 January (within 20 days of acceptance) and make a proposal for referendum to the council, including his own opinion. If passed by the council, the referendum will go ahead.

A consortium headed by Clairvest Neem Ventures was selected as Wakayama’s preferred operator partner in June 2021 and a basic agreement between the operator and prefecture was signed in August. It was announced at the end of September that US casino giant Caesars Entertainment would participate as casino operator should the central government approve Wakayama’s IR bid.

Clairvest is currently working with the prefecture to put together a regional development plan, which must be submitted to the central government by 28 April.

However, a series of resident briefings that had been planned for last November were postponed after it was pointed out that specific details around the provision of capital and funding had not been disclosed.
