Cambodian national police and Australian national police yesterday vowed to increase cooperation to fight the drug and human trafficking, border crimes and cybercrime.

The agreement was reached while Andrew Colvin, the Australian National Police commissioner, met his Cambodian counterpart General Neth Savoeun, on a visit to Cambodia which ended yesterday.

“The Cambodian National Police Commissariat and the National Police Commissariat of the Australian Federation Police vow to increase cooperation to fight against drug trafficking, human trafficking, cross-border crime, and cybercrime,” the Cambodian side said.

“Andrew Colvin reiterated his support to Cambodia in terms of training work and sharing information to prevent crime.”

According to a National Police annual report published on July 24, police cracked down on 63 human trafficking crimes and sex businesses in the first half of 2017.
