Eleven Taiwanese trapped in Cambodia return: CIB

Information found in a ledger discovered during a gang investigation was forwarded to Cambodia’s deputy prime minister, who helped locate the Taiwanese.

Eleven Taiwanese who were among hundreds trafficked to Cambodia to work for fraud rings have returned to Taiwan, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said on Monday.

The return of the Taiwanese — two on Sunday and nine on Monday — was achieved with the assistance of Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Sar Kheng, the bureau said.

The 11 people were among about 373 Taiwanese known to be trapped in the Southeast Asian country after being lured there by the promise of lucrative job offers that turned out to be scams run by fraud rings seeking workers, the government said.
