Taiwan arrests spur mass trafficking to Cambodia probe

Taiwan has detained a couple for colluding with human traffickers and announced a special task force to deal with reports that “thousands of Taiwanese” were lured into Cambodia by promises of high-paid jobs but were instead forced to work for organized crime syndicates.

Taiwan’s Criminal Investigation Bureau announced the arrests on Aug. 14 and presented items seized from the couple, including passports, forged Covid-19 vaccination records, mobile phones, bank documents, checks and cash.

The bureau said the surname of the man was Tsai and his girlfriend’s surname was Tsan.
