Jakarta (Antara Bali) - Jakarta police are hunting RD, an alleged financier of an online international football gambling activity through website "www.sh***t.com."
"RD is the suspected financier of a gambling activity carried out by suspect Budi," head of Unit V Sub-Directorate of Mobile Intelligence of the Jakarta Metropolitan Command's Directorate of Crime Investigation, Commissioner Handik Zusen, said here on Sunday.
He said the businessman from Sumatra's Bangka-Belitung province had entrusted Budi as his agent to carry out the online football gambling activity since two years ago.
He said RD had given Budi Rp2 billion as a capital for a credit limit for the gambling activity with its headquarters located overseas.
He said Budi acted as a collector of bets from participants and he would later extend the bets to the organizer.
The police had arrested Budi from a house on Jalan Sunter Karya, Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta, on August 31, 2015.
From him they had confiscated a token key, an ATM card, a savings account book, two cellphones and a computer tablet. (WDY)
