More arrests as Cambodia continues trafficking purge

Bangladeshis, Indians, Mongolians, Nepalese and Filipinos also among the victims.

Cambodian police have arrested 15 Thais wanted for cyber fraud and working illegally from a compound in the southern port town of Sihanoukville, following a request from the Thai embassy in Phnom Penh.

Interior Ministry spokesperson Khieu Sopheak told the government-aligned Fresh News service that arrest warrants had been issued against the 15 while another four people, who had not committed any crimes, would be allowed to return to their homes in Thailand.

The arrests came as Cambodia steps up its efforts to combat human trafficking.
