This week China's Minister of Public Security announced his desire to create a blacklist of online gambling sites, which are not authorized within the country.
Minister Zhao Kezhi said that the government should move to blacklist betting sites as a way to strike out at illegal betting rings that are targeting Chinese citizens. Virtually all of these sites are operating outside of the country, making it difficult for China to close these rings down, hence the desire to issue ISP mandates on blockades.
In addition to blocking the websites, Zhao is advocating for working with governments in other countries to crack down on gambling rings. The country has worked with the likes of the Philippines and Vietnam in arresting citizens and revoking passports of those involved in the criminal enterprises.
