Police arrest two Japanese fraud suspects deported from Cambodia

Police arrested two Japanese men Wednesday over their alleged involvement in a Cambodia-based fraud ring, following their deportation from the Southeast Asian country.


The suspects, 55-year-old Shigeru Sato and Hiroki Ito, 48, were arrested on fraud allegations while aboard a flight headed for Tokyo’s Haneda airport, which landed at around 6 a.m.

Investigative sources and people familiar with the matter have said the two are the last of a group of seven Japanese to have been detained in connection with the fraud ring. The rest are back in Japan and have been questioned by Japanese police.
