Brigadier General Y Sok Khy, director of the Counter Terrorism and Cross Border Crime department at the Ministry of Interior, said 235 Chinese nationals were arrested at four locations in Takeo’s Tram Kak and Bati districts after months of investigation.

“We received information and conducted investigations before arresting them,” he said, adding that all the suspects have now been sent to the General Department of Immigration for further action.
