‘Accomplices’ Detained in Covid-19 Quarantine Hotel Jailbreak Case

Authorities are closing “a little loophole” in Covid-19 quarantine procedures following the escape of two Chinese men from a hotel on Wednesday night, with officers on the chase and “accomplices” brought in for questioning.

The two Chinese nationals arrived in Phnom Penh on Tuesday around 11 a.m., according to the Health Ministry, matching the details of a China Eastern Airlines flight from Shanghai. The men, who tested negative for the virus, were to stay at a hotel for two nights to wait for the test results of all passengers on the flight, but fled the hotel after a night.

Phnom Penh governor Khuong Sreng said on Thursday that authorities were pursuing clues in the case.
