The Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia has blocked 15 new internet sites, most of them originating from Vietnam, including the popular Vietnamese lottery website Vina24h.

The Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia says it will continue to cooperate with the National Police, relevant authorities and all telecom operators to eliminate all domain names that operate and provide illegal online gambling and lottery services and circulars. These blockings are based on the guideline of the Royal Government No. 07, dated 18 August 2019, on strengthening the management of the electronic gambling business through the Internet, online, domestic and foreign, as well as any other domain name that operates illegally in Cambodia.

The goal is to participate in maintaining security, public order and social order.

The Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia also calls on the public to report to the Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia at 6789 during business hours or on Facebook: “Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia” and provide details of any online gambling services, illegal lotteries and the posting of child pornographic images and videos in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
