Communist China Follows US Footsteps Regarding Online Gambling

February 26, 2007, Communist China enforced a drive against cyber betting and gambling, following in the footsteps of the US which made the same move last October.

According to the joint press releases by China's State Press and Publication Administration along with the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Information Industry and the Ministry of Culture, internet gambling has ruined the entire cyber environment and hindered the growth of the youth. Thus, it is a deviation from the state policy of building up a harmonious and progressive society.

The drive, which would run in 3 months time, shall concentrate on key places such as Shanghai, Guangdong, Zhejiang and China's capital, Beijing.

Local Government Units of China are called to strictly monitor activities of online gaming service providers to avoid money laundering and exchange of virtual money to real currencies or goods.

This enforcement by the Chinese Government is strongly supported by United States' Senator Jon Kyl, who also chairs the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security.

Kyl quoted one known professor who equated online gambling to cocaine use. He said that gambling on the Internet could be addictive, possibly leading to bankruptcy, violence, crime and even suicide.
