Philippine authorities have expelled South Korea’s illegal online gambling operators while continuing to uncover more Chinese-run underground medical clinics believed to be serving local gambling operations.
On Tuesday, Philippine media reported that Immigration Bureau (BI) officials had arrested a South Korean national who was trying to fly home via Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The individual, 27-year-old An Byeonghyeon, appears on Interpol’s “red notice” list, an international “wanted” list for law enforcement agencies.
An is on the list because he and some of his former friends are thought to have run illegal online sports gambling websites from Manila from 2017 to March this year. The site, known as “Syrup, Milk, Butter, Sugar,” targeting South Korean customers returning home, caused authorities in Busan to include offender names on Interpol’s redlist.
A man was also arrested for stealing travel documents but BI officials allowed him to board the plane after informing their South Korean counterpart, who detained An as soon as his plane arrived in Seoul. If found guilty, An faces up to 10 years in prison.
(The timing may be coincidental, but Tuesday saw the Korean media publish alerts from the sports lottery run by the state of Sports Toto (pari-mutuel) and Sports Proto (fixed odds), reminding bettors that all bets not offered by the country are illegal) and that sheltering this site could result in penalties under the National Sports Promotion Act.
The Philippines is more accustomed to the online gambling operation pokerpelangi conducted by Chinese nationals, including 90 people arrested 10 days ago at a cheap motel in southern Manila. Acting on information from locals, police confiscated more than 50 laptops, 100 mobile phones and cash equivalent to US $ 105k.
