Cambodia deports 19 Japanese cybercrime scam suspects

Nineteen Japanese men detained in Cambodia in January on suspicion of participating in phone and online scams have been deported to their homeland, according to the police.

The group boarded a chartered flight organised by the Japanese government on Tuesday at Phnom Penh International Airport, Cambodian National Police spokesperson General Chhay Kim Khouen said.

The Immigration Police, part of Cambodia’s Ministry of Interior, said in a statement that the men were deported because they violated immigration law by living and working in Cambodia illegally. They will not be allowed to re-enter the country for three years, it said.
