Indonesia’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has announced the plans to develop a web crawler to actively seek out online gambling websites and prevent people from accessing them.

Currently, the ministry with its special team Cyber Drone 9 is operating a “web crawler” used to systematically seek out negative contents on the Internet, mainly those related to pornography and radicalism.

The government has so far never blocked websites directly, but asked Internet operators to block those contents violating the law in Indonesia.

At a meeting with lawmakers at the House of Representatives, the ministry’s Information Applications Director General Semuel Pangerapan, told them about the ministry’s plan to include online gambling under control.

“We also want (contents related to) gambling to be controlled this way,” Pangerapan said.

“We will propose its budget next year, for a stronger machine to control,” he said, adding that with the machine, the government can directly block the websites.

The ministry is proposing 1 trillion Indonesian rupiahs (US$69.5 million) for the machine in 2021.

Cambodia’s cabinet has approved the draft law on commercial gaming management, according to reports in the Phnom Penh Post.

The law “focuses on ensuring integrated commercial gambling that contributes to economic growth, tourism promotion, job creation, and revenue generation,” the report said, citing a press release from the Council of Ministers.

It calls for strict casino sector management and measures to protect against money laundering and terrorism financing.

The report gave little information on the details of the bill, except to confirm that locals will not be permitted to gamble and there will be no further licenses issued within 200km of the capital, where NagaCorp has a monopoly.

The report cited government spokesman Phay Siphan as saying that money laundering and terrorism financing concerns are addressed through cooperation with relevant casino partners.

The gambling law has been in the works for nine years.
