100 Syrian Pounds is the penalty of “Gambling”!

Gambling Game become circulated in the country as a result of the lack of penalty for those who practice it or having it as a career, as there’s too many activities for this game players as especially with the approach of the New Year and holidays.

Lawyer Mamdouh Hamed said to “Tishreen” that the general penal code punishes the crime of gambling in 618/619/620, where it differed between the opening of a gambling house and gambling by people, where both are illegal, except the law tightened the penalty of opening a gambling house where its fine from 100 to 1000 Syrian Pounds only, while the penalty for a gambling player costs from 25 to 100 Syrian pounds only!

Hamed added that these penalties are short and old and need to be adjusted in order to fit with the current situation of civilization, also the demand of increasing both of fines and penalties because gambling is a scourge which is not less dangerous than drug abuse, and it needs a new law and regulate this offense as the penalty of gambling consider as a Legal Misdemeanor.
