The Ministry of Interior has said that the arrest of more than 100 Chinese nationals last week was based on the spirit of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with China and relevant Cambodian immigration laws.
A ministry press release issued on Friday to clarify what it called “misleading comments” in some media outlets said the people who were arrested were wanted by the authorities in China for crimes in their homeland.
“We searched for the offenders following a warrant from Chinese authorities who were seeking to take legal action and find justice for their victims in China.
