Galloping gamble (05 Oct 2000)


The programme examines the problem of illegal gambling in Hong Kong and what can be done about it. While the money made by the Hong Kong Jockey Club goes back to the community, many suspect that a huge amount of money is spent on illegal gambling. The prevalence of Internet and mobile phone use has prompted rapid proliferation of illegal gambling. It is difficult to track down and prosecute bookies because existing laws are often out-dated. Mary Leung Ling Tien-wei (Vice Chairman, The Society for Truth and Light) suggests that existing legislation needs to be updated, while others think that international co-operation and more accessible legal gambling are the solutions.
