According to several media reports in China and Cambodia, staff at an unnamed casino in Sihanoukville illegally detained 8 Chinese gamblers and beat them for nearly 10 hours. The 4 men and 4 women had won several thousand dollars each, when they were separated, questioned, accused of cheating, and beaten severely in the casino back rooms.
In a scene out of a Las Vegas mob casino movie, 8 Chinese gamblers received real-life beatings in the back rooms of a Cambodia casino on April 3. The 8 gamblers were called into back rooms separately, accused of cheating, and then beaten savagely for nearly 10 hours. The assailants used force in order to obtain signed confessions admitting to cheating from each victim.
When the victims refused, they were beaten again. Hospital photos released by Chinese media show clear signs of the beatings, with severe bruises and cuts on the victims’ arms, legs, and necks. One man had his fingers broken.
