Police have arrested four unlicensed job brokers who failed to deliver on a promise to find work in Japan for 25 people.
Each victims paid about $200 to be sent to work in Japan, but the jobs never materialised.
The victims went to Asean AP’s office in Phnom Penh’s Por Senchey district to demand their money back when they were unable to contact the company, but the office was locked and no one was there.
District police chief Yim Sarann said officers cooperated with the Ministry of Social Affairs to apprehend the suspects.
“We arrested four people after the Ministry of Social Affairs highlighted irregularities at the company,” Mr Sarann said.
The National Police identified the suspects as Sak Maiheang, 63, Ket Sreylaut, 36, Thon Sreyoun, 24 and Mom Sreymab, 22.
Mr Sarann said investigations showed the company was unlicensed.
The suspects have been detained at the Interior Ministry’s Department of Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection since Friday.
So Vandy, deputy director of the department, said his team was collecting witness evidence before pressing charges against the four.
“We are working on the case. We need clear and concrete evidence before we charge anyone,” he said.
