KUALA LUMPUR, Jun 21 – Sixty football bookies involved in illegal betting activities either individually or as a syndicate have been arrested by police under “Ops Soga” which started well before Euro 2016 kicked off on June 10. According to police, the 60 suspects were detained since June 1, and believed to be involved in illegal betting activities involving Euro 2016 matches in France.

Ops Soga will go on until July 10 which is the last day of Euro 2016. Khalid said apart from Ops Soga, Ops Selamat which is a yearly affair, during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, would be held from June 28 to July 13. He said traffic police will not be allowed to go on leave during Ops Selamat. — Bernama
