Interior Ministry’s General Immigration Department yesterday deported more than 100 Chinese nationals who were caught operating Voice over Internet Protocol scams.
According to GID report, it cooperated with airport officials on Saturday to fly the 116 Chinese suspects, including 29 women by two chartered flights from Phnom Penh International Airport to China.
“Those 116 Chinese were National Police’s anti-cybercrime department crackdown on August 10,” the report said.
Brigadier General Ath Bony, deputy director of the General Administrative Department of the General Department of Immigration, said those Chinese were arrested over suspected of extorting money from people in China via VoIP in the Kingdom.
“We cooperated with China’s Ministry of Public Security to deport them to implement the law in China,” he said.
General Immigration Department last month deported 150 Chinese nationals who were caught operating VOIP scams in Preah Sihanouk and Kampong Speu provinces.
