After enactment of the anti-gambling law, the unlawful operators were raided by the police that detained thirty-nine people including customers, managers and proprietors. An amount of €10,442, other electronic machinery and thirty-two printers were recovered. Fifty eight computer towers were also seized during the search operation.
A case of under-age gambling with arrest of two minors also came to surface that leads to imprisonment for one year, and/or fine of up to €50,000 for the concerned accused. Sixteen wagering establishments were questioned by the police with search warrants on Tuesday night. Andreas Angelides, the spokesman of the police said that the law would be implemented in a strict manner and the unauthorized facilities will no longer exist. As regards the rise in clients to the occupied-area casinos, Angelides said that it is under analysis.
Consequent upon implementation of the anti-gambling law on July 11, few of the affected unauthorized gambling shops have taken shelter in the British Sovereign Base Areas (SBA). In response to a question if the police had observed shifting of the shops to the areas not under the jurisdiction of the government; Andreas Angelides said that it appears so in the case of few unlawful operators. He added that this was to be dealt by the bases and their information is still awaited. He added that they were in agreement with the bases for implementation of the law there also.
