11 more Taiwanese human trafficking victims repatriated from Cambodia

Eleven Taiwanese nationals, who had been among hundreds of others trafficked to Cambodia to work for fraud rings, were sent home over the past two two days, Taiwan’s Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said Monday.

The return of the 11 Taiwanese — two on Sunday and nine on Monday — was achieved with the assistance of Cambodia Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Sar Kheng, the CIB said.

According to the Taiwan government, the 11 people were among some 373 Taiwanese victims who were known to be trapped in Cambodia after they were lured there by lucrative job offers that turned out to be scams run by fraud rings seeking workers.
