Chinese Online Gambling Bust
By staff
Chinese officials have arrested 597 people allegedly connected with a 500 million yuan ($78 million dollars) online underground gambling network.

The Ministry of Public Security said the network was run by a Taiwan-based gambling company which jointly organised online gambling activities in 22 provinces in China with Chinese criminal syndicates.

China launched its assault on gambling websites as part of a sweeping campaign to prevent officials from betting away public money after last year's public scandals.

The Ministry of Information Industry, the top Chinese agency in charge of the Internet, will tighten supervision of online content and crack down on offenders, state sponsored media said earlier.
