Thirty Cambodian citizens who were convicted of crimes in the United States and subsequently deported arrived in the Kingdom this morning, a senior immigration police officer told Khmer Times.
According to the officer, the group arrived at Phnom Penh International Airport at about 7.30am before being taken to the immigration department for debriefing.
“Yes, those 30 people have arrived this morning,” he said.
In early April, a total of 43 deportees also arrived in the country.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has said at least 534 possible deportees were waiting for travel documents from Cambodia, with some requests stretching back to 2008.
