Thirty Four Indonesians Rescued from Trafficking Ring in Cambodia

The Cambodian Police have rescued 34 Indonesian nationals who were tricked into forced labor after they came to the country for “high-paid jobs”, a Foreign Affairs Ministry official said on Sunday.

One of the victims managed to contact the Indonesian Embassy in Phnom Penh on Thursday and it was learned that more than 30 Indonesian nationals were being held to work in an online scam company in the town of Poipet near the border with Thailand.

Embassy officials immediately contacted the local police to rescue all the workers, according to Judha Nugraha, the ministry’s director of protection for Indonesian nationals overseas.
