Malaysia asks Cambodia to speed up probe on 47 detainees

Putrajaya – Malaysia hopes that the Cambodian authorities will expedite their investigation process on the 47 Malaysians being held at the Banteay Meanchey Provincial Prison so that those not guilty can be freed soon, said Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.

“The earlier, the better. Of the 47 detained, we ask that those not involved in any wrongdoing be released immediately.

“We are confident that the majority of those detained are not involved in any offences because they are just victims of a job scam,“ he told the media after attending the Foreign Ministry Inter-Agency meeting here today.
