Chinese IT Worker Victim of Kandal Kidnap

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Geez, what is it with the proliferation of these Chinese kidnappings? :facepalm:

I gather they are mainly: go to casino>lose money>borrow money from loan shark>go to casino again>lose money>loan shark wants money>cannot pay>kidnapped>extort money from family to repay

What else? Drugs?

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Kidnap em, confiscate their passports, and enslave them in sweatshops to work programming gambling apps under threat of death? Or stun gun assaults if they make any mistakes. Or so the rumours go.

^^^Scary story. I imagined it would be tough to work for a Chinese company in any capacity but I hadn't imagined how ruthless the Chinese criminal gangs were. A life is made to be used and discarded as needed.

But some news doesn't reach China, their Great (fire)Wall is extremely effective.

It was posted by another member last week, but seems to have been largely overlooked. Worth the read.
