Law enforcement agencies from China, Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos have taken part in a coordinated operation to combat gambling fraud syndicates, marking a significant step in curbing cross-border criminal activities.

The joint effort, which took place on Aug 15 and 16, involved the Ministry of Public Security of China, Thai police headquarters, Myanmar police headquarters, and Lao Ministry of Public Security.

Focusing on eradicating gambling fraud and related crimes such as human trafficking, kidnapping, and illegal detention, the operation was centered in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The four countries decided to establish a specialized coordination center in the city in a move that emphasized enhanced cooperation, proactive measures, and a professional approach.

Underscoring their commitment, the parties said they wanted to issue a stern warning through tangible actions to criminal groups that persist in their activities. By demonstrating their resolute determination, China, Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos aim to showcase their united efforts to combat gambling fraud on the international stage.
