‘Blood slave’ kidnapped by Chinese crime gang in Cambodia drained for months and threatened with organ harvesting

The case of a Chinese man kidnapped and used as a “blood slave” by a gang in the Cambodian city of Sihanoukville has shocked authorities.

The man, surnamed Li, managed to escape earlier this month with the help of a member of the gang which ran an online fraud operation using a fake company, the Chutian Metropolis News reported.

According to Cambodia-based Chinese-language newspaper Asia Pacific Times, Li, a 31-year-old from eastern Jiangsu province in China, had 800ml of blood taken from him every month since August last year. The blood was most likely sold to private buyers online, reported the paper.
