Cambodian police to repatriate 3,000 Thai online scammers

Thai government expected to send naval vessel to take home detained nationals.

Cambodian police say they are ready to coordinate the repatriation of between 2,800 and 3,000 Thai nationals detained after working in illegal online scam operations — some of whom were duped — and are currently being housed in compounds.

Thai officials are expected to arrive in Cambodia this weekend and national police spokesperson Chhay Kim Khoeun told Voice of Democracy (VOD) that authorities would work with their Thai counterparts once they received a formal request.

“We need to cooperate because we are neighboring countries and also members of the same ASEAN police,” he said, referring to the Association of South East Asian Nations.
