Calvin Ayre on 23rd June reported that police across the Asia-Pacific region traditionally treat quadrennial football tournaments as their own World Cup of Arresting Bookmakers and Bettors, and this year’s is proving no exception.  For example, 12Bet has been linked to an operation by Vietnamese police targeting unapproved betting on the World Cup, where Ho Chi Minh City police arrested 4 individuals linked to an online gambling ring that handled over $26.2 million in wagers since police began monitoring the ring’s activities last year.  In Thailand, 3,000 arrests were made in the first 4 days of the tournament.
