HA NOI (VNS) — The HCM City People's Procuracy suggested increasing the sentences for members of an illegal online gambling ring yesterday.

The gang was arrested in 2013.

The hearings for the case began on August 24. According to the indictment, Vuong Chan Thanh and his wife Dam Kim Khuyen and 64 other defendants were accused of organising gambling events on 188bet.com.

The procuracy suggested Thanh be given nine to 10 years in jail, while his wife and two of his siblings should receive seven to eight year terms.

The total amount of money passing through the ring reached nearly VND400 billion (more than US$18 million), making it one of the largest to be uncovered in the city this year.

The trial is expected to end on Friday. — VNS
