Pornography, Gambling Cracked
Chinese police have handled over 130,000 pornography cases and over 280,000 gambling cases since the beginning of 2017, with the reported number of related cases dropping 13 percent year on year, the Ministry of Public Security announced on March 29.
Police solved 135 major crossborder cases involving pornography and online gambling during the same period. They broke up domestic organizational channels for casinos based in more than 10 countries and regions, detaining over 5,300 suspects and freezing over 6 billion yuan ($956 million) of involved capital, the ministry said.
It vowed to target the organizers, operators and profiteers involved in pornography and gambling and to severely punish those providing an “umbrella” for these illegal activities.
