Update: More People Get Arrested in Malaysian Football Bust

The number of arrested persons increases to 144

More details arrived after the initial reports of the Malaysian football online gambling busts, informing the public that the tip-off which told the police of the raided premises actually believed that they were involved in drug activity.

Still, this was a great opportunity for the police to break a major illegal betting ring, which also conducted internet-based fraud scams.

It appears that the criminal group earned over US$1.3 billion in a single month of operation, judging by the seized records.

It has been reported in the newspapers that the ring operated from several luxury bungalows in an upscale gated community 'home to several ministers and former cabinet members,' which had closed-circuit video systems for security.

In addition, the suspects were equipped with 241 mobile phones and 43 computers. The number of people arrested in the action has now risen to 144.
