Gambling Operators Can Face Jail or Death Penalty by Iran’s Cyber Police


Islamic Republic of Iran’s parliament is making a new law to punish online gambling operators and their co-workers by years of jail or even death. However, this act won’t include only gambling operators but players as well according to the reliable source shartino.com.

Although gamblers are usually the victims of illegal and scam betting sites, but they are also threatened with certain punishments by Iran’s Cyber Police. Arresting couples of advertisers, money transferors, and players, and presenting them handcuffed on TV, has reportedly decreased the number of gamblers` activities on betting sites in Iran.

According to Iran HRM, insisting on committing such crimes and lack of remorse can even lead to be considered as so-called “corruption on earth” which usually is punished by death. Corruption on earth is considered an act against God’s order for mankind.

Gambling is not the only crime included in this category, but many other crimes as well. Such as political dissent, homosexuality, prostitution, political corruption, and treason.

Generally, gambling of any kind is so-called “haram” or crime by the laws of Islam. Therefore, no surprise that any form of gambling has always been a crime since 1979, the beginning of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

But due to the massive increase in the number of online betting sites, thousands of scam and phishing reports by the people, have increased public sensitivity and attention towards online betting sites and led to such aggressive legislation by the government.

This is the first time that the government is approving a bill against online gambling. Reza Taghipour Anwari, one of the Islamic Consultative Assembly’s Industries Commission members, explained that the new legislation will criminalize any form of cooperation with gambling operators. Including, advertisement, providing payment solutions, acting as a support agent, or even registration on betting sites.

He mentioned that the Iran’s cyber police (FATA) will find the identity of players, by the documents they use in order to verify their accounts on online gambling sites. However, he did not explain how they planned on achieving such information. It’s believed they are not capable of finding gambler’s identity and are more bluffing about their recent arrests.

However, their aim is to scare people from joining online betting, and it seems to be working. Taghipour said there were a few corrections made to the bill by the Parliamentary Research Centre. And the bill will be provided to the parliament for approval as soon as it’s pluralized by Judicial Commission.
