Twelve Nigerians have been arrested in Phnom Penh for allegedly forging passports and visas allowing people to stay in Cambodia.
 
Interior Ministry chief migration investigator Uk Heisela said the 12 were arrested after immigration police raided rented villas in Teuk Thla commune between Sunday and Tuesday.
 
“They were accused of forging public documents and human trafficking,” he said.
 
However, he did not give any more details or release their names.
 
A police officer with the ministry said the suspects trafficked other Nigerians to live in Cambodia illegally last year.  
 
They forged public documents by producing the fake passports and extended visas to stay in Cambodia.  
 
Four of them were sent yesterday to Phnom Penh Municipal Court for questioning. The others were being detained for questioning by immigration police.
