Polri’s Online Gambling Eradication Task Force Breaks Down 3 Online Gambling Houses with Rp1 Trillion in Turnover

progresifjaya.id, JAKARTA – The Polri’s Online Gambling Eradication Task Force has never hesitated to bust and break down the operations of online gambling houses.
This is a follow-up to the direction of President Joko Widodo and Kapolri, Jenderal Pol Listyo Sigit Prabowo to never hesitate to give up online gambling.

Deputy Head of the Daily Law Enforcement Task Force for the Eradication of Online Gambling Websites, Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada in his official statement said, that Kapolrk Listyo Sigit had given instructions and direction to all ranks via a telegram letter from the Kapolri on April 30 2024 to increase law enforcement against perpetrators of online gambling practices. This means that the Polri will never compromise on brushing and burying online gambling in Indonesia.

He also said, that in the period from May to June there were three disclosures of online gambling cases. A total of 18 suspects could also be arrested in this disclosure.

“The three cases of online gambling that were revealed were the home websites 1XBET, W88, and Liga Ciputra,” said Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada at Polri Headquarters, Friday, (22/6) yesterday.

He detailed, that in the disclosure of the online gambling case on the 1XBET site, 9 suspects were thrown into detention cells. Then when they broke up the W88 site, seven suspects were put in cells. Meanwhile, when they broke into the Ciputra League site, two suspects were locked up in a cell.

“Online gambling on the Ciputra League website was arrested by Polda Metro Jaya on June 11 2024. Two suspects in this case have been locked up,” he said again.

All of these suspects, continued Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada, were charged under Article 45 paragraph (3) juncto Article 27 paragraph (2) Law Number 1 of 2024 concerning ITE, Article 82 and/or Article 85 of Law Number 3 of 2011 concerning Actions Crime of Fund Transfer, Article 3, Article 4, Article 5 in conjunction with Article 10 of Law Number 8 of 2010 concerning Prevention and Eradication of Money Laundering, as well as Article 303 of the Criminal Code in conjunction with Article 55 paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code.

With the layers of articles imposed, said Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada, they could all get a visa to stay in prison for two decades, aka 20 years.

Furthermore, Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada also said, that from the three gambling website houses that were successfully busted, the Polri found out that the turnover of money from the three online gambling sites was very high, up to Rp1 trillion. The accumulated exact value of the estimated money turnover from the three gambling websites is recorded at
Rp1.041.000.000.000.

The trick is, to run their online gambling business operations, the three gambling houses namely  1XBET, W88 and Liga Ciputra use servers located abroad. Even more tricky are the three gambling houses too
disguised his online gambling transactions.

“Their modus operandi is to work together collectively to carry out unlawful activities by providing deposit and withdrawal payment systems on the three online gambling websites,” explained Komjen Pol Wahyu Widada.

The suspects disguised the payments by sending bank accounts via expedition. The suspect also used crypto to circulate money for online gambling.

“Sending payment instruments or bank accounts in Indonesia via expedition abroad to disguise financial transactions. Carrying out money circulation through cryptocurrency and money changers,” he stressed.

The 3-star general, the best graduate who won Adhi Makayasa from the 1991 Bhara Daksa Police Academy Battalion also said, that all operations of the three online gambling houses were controlled from abroad. All of this was done in the hope that their illegal activities would be safe and the Polri wouldn’t be able to reach them.

He also added, that in the last three months from April 23 to June 17 2024, the Bareskrim Polri has recorded actions to uncover 318 online gambling cases. From this action, 464 suspects were also locked up in cells.

Also confiscated in this disclosure was Rp67,5 billion in evidence, 494 mobile phones, 36 laptops, 257 accounts, 98 online gambling accounts and 296 ATM cards. Weleh-weleh. (Bembo)
