Police in northern Vietnam’s Mong Cai City on Sunday arrested a group of 11 wanted Chinese citizens allegedly renting a house to operate online gambling activities, ten of whom entered the country illegally.

On Friday last week, Mong Cai policen officers coordinated a raid on a house in Hai Yen Ward on suspicions of illegal activities and caught red-handed a group of 11 Chinese nationals gambling and organizing gambling on Chinese sites.

Police seized four laptops, ten bank cards issued by Chinese banks, 63 unused Chinese SIM cards, eight Wi-Fi routers, and other relevant items.

Ten of the 11 detainees were found to have entered Vietnam unlawfully.

According to a preliminary investigation, via a local resident in Mong Cai, the Chinese suspects had rented a house where they installed equipment to conduct illegal gambling and set up online casinos on Chinese platforms.

Working with their counterparts in China’s Dongxing City, Mong Cai investigators found that the group of foreigners were being wanted by Dongxing police after being accused of organizing online gambling.

After completing the necessary proceedings, Vienamese police officers handed over the detainees along with the seized exhibits to Dongxing police on Saturday evening as per a crime prevention cooperation agreement between the two sides.
