Johor State Police Chief, Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said that the suspects, aged between 22 and 43 were believed to be football bookies.

As reported by Bernama, the arrests were made via PDRM’s OP Soga IX in Johor since 14 November 2022 and to date, the value of the betting limit credit exceeded RM1 million. Kamarul Zaman Mamat asserted,

“Police also confiscated cash amounting to RM9,730 and 10 handphones of various brands as well as SIM cards and a memo notepad containing suspected betting on World Cup Qatar 2022 football tournament,”


All suspects are currently being remanded between 2 to 4 days starting today, with the case being investigated under Section 6(3) of Betting Act 1953. If found guilty, the suspects may be fined up to RM200,000 and up to 5 years imprisonment. Moreover, all of the suspects were also investigated under Section 6(1) and Section 4(1)(D) of the Betting Act 1953.
