(AFP) - PHNOM PENH - CAMBODIA'S premier warned football fans to resist illegal gambling on the upcoming World Cup, with police across the country ready to arrest anybody found having a flutter.
'On Friday, the World Cup will start. I would like to appeal to (the people) not to bet on football,' Prime Minister Hun Sen said during a student-graduation ceremony on Wednesday.
'Both secret and open football betting must finish. Just watch it and clap your hands,' he said.
Terjemahannya : "Hentikan judi bola nih - halal atau haram, tengok dan tepuk tangan"
Mr Hun Sen said he did not want to see 'other countries win the football, but Cambodian people lose money'.
Terjemahan : 'En. Hun Sen tidak mahu 'Melihat negara lain menang Piala Dunia, rakyat Cambodia kalah - hilang duit'
Cambodia's sole football bookmaker was abruptly closed in early 2009 as Mr Hun Sen ordered a crackdown on betting, saying that gambling caused family disputes, domestic violence and robbery.
Terjemahan : Satu-satunya pihak berlesen judi bola di Cambodia ditutup pada 2009 dalam usaha menghalang perjudian. Perjudian menyebabkan keruntuhan rumahtangga, keganasan rumahtangga serta jenayah kecurian.
