Cambodia extradites 130 Chinese nationals in fraud crackdown

Phnom Penh, APR 13: One hundred and thirty Chinese nationals suspected of involvement in gambling and fraud-related crimes were extradited from Cambodia by public security authorities of both countries and brought back to China on Saturday morning, according to China’s Ministry of Public Security.

The suspects arrived at Tianhe International Airport in Wuhan, Hubei province, on two chartered flights operated by Chinese civil aviation. This marks the first batch of suspects jointly targeted for extradition by the law enforcement agencies of both countries in the crackdown on gambling and fraud-related crimes this year. The public security authorities said that there will be more suspects who will be extradited back to China in batches.

In recent years, in order to crack down on transnational gambling, telecom fraud, and other crimes, the Chinese and Cambodian law enforcement authorities have closely cooperated and achieved a series of results.
