Thais Freed from Chinese Ring in Cambodia Return Home

More than 100 Thais who were rescued from a Chinese online gambling ring in Cambodia returned home on Wednesday, according to police officers who said this was at least the fourth repatriation since late October of workers who were lured by promises of earning good money.

Officials from Thailand and Cambodia cooperated in Tuesday’s crackdown of the ring, which operates illegal businesses in Pursat, a province in southern Cambodia, according to a Thai police official tasked with supervising anti-human trafficking operations.

Earlier, some of those being held were able to contact relatives to seek help from officials, Police Gen. Roy Ingkaroj, a deputy national police chief, told reporters at the bridge connecting Poi Pet in Cambodia and Aranyaprathet in Thailand during a repatriation ceremony.
