Chinese nationals lead in terms of offences

In the first three months of 2019, 241 Chinese were detained by Cambodian authorities, more than the Vietnamese, Thais, South Koreans and Americans. Chinese nationals also top the list of victims of offences as well. “The issue is that Chinese nationals boast of relations with the Royal Government,” one official said. For activist, Chinese nationals should be monitored to see if “they respect our traditions and customs, and Cambodian law”.

In the first three months of this year, Cambodian authorities intensified their crackdown against crime. Among foreigners, people from China rank first in terms of offences committed in the country, more than Vietnamese, Thais, South Koreans and Americans, this according to an Interior Ministry report released yesterday.
