Cambodian govt to deport 700 Chinese for alleged cybercrimes

Hundreds of South Asians rescued from Cambodian scam compounds, an industry worth billions of dollars.

Cambodia will deport 700 Chinese nationals suspected of running illegal online gambling and scam operations amid a crackdown on cyber criminals operating out of Sihanoukville, a notorious den for organized crime on the south coast.

The Chinese were detained after joint Cambodian-Chinese police operations at the Thmor Yeak Beach Resort and Chan Krasnaa Resort and followed a similar crackdown on Chinese nationals, at the behest of Beijing, in Laos and Myanmar.

CambojaNews quoted a Chinese embassy statement in regards to the deportations that said both governments would cooperate to vigorously pursue criminals until the crime network, allegedly connected to Chinese nationals in Cambodia, is “completely eradicated.”
