56 trafficking victims escape Cambodian casino

Large Vietnamese group makes run for freedom from scam center as police inspect premises.

A group of 56 Vietnamese have staged a mass breakout from a Cambodian casino, the second in a month, after they were allegedly tricked into taking jobs and forced to work 12-hour days running online scams, officials said.

A video of the escape at the casino in Bavet on the Vietnamese border shows security guards dressed in black chasing down the workers in heavy rain on Sept 17.

However, Cambodian police intervened and are holding the alleged human trafficking victims for their own safety and have forced casino operators to hand over another 11 Vietnamese workers on Sept 18 who were still being held.
