Kidnapped Cambodian Online Casino Worker Rescued Following Violent Threats

A kidnapped employee of an online casino based in Sihanoukville, Cambodia was rescued recently after being threatened her fingers would be cut off if she failed to pay a $4,950 ransom, as Southeast Asia responds to multiple recent abductions.

The kidnappers claim the 24-year-old worker used company money from the online operation for personal use. She was held in its office until police searched the building, located her, and arrested four suspected kidnappers, according to the Malay Mail.

The kidnapping apparently took place earlier this month. The employee’s husband on Oct. 15 reported to police the woman was missing, authorities said, and the woman was apparently rescued on Saturday.
