According to the initial investigation by the Cambodian police, the case of “a Chinese kidnapped and sent to Cambodia as a blood slave” is completely fabricated, the Chinese embassy in Cambodia said on Monday.
Li Yayuanlun, known as the victim of the case, was in fact smuggled into Cambodia and contracted a serious liver disease. He later contacted a local organization for help, said the Chinese embassy quoting a statement by the Cambodian police.
However, three people assisted Li in fabricating and propagating fake news for different purposes. Li was promoted as a “blood slave” who was illegally detained and abused, which misled public opinion and seriously affected social order, said the Chinese embassy in Monday’s statement posted on its official WeChat account.
