13 more young foreigners detained by Sihanoukville police

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.

The Chinese authorities are providing planes to deport their nationals arrested for VoIP scams in Cambodia. Presumably, they are also providing the means to identify them and take them into custody.

28 October 2017
61 Chinese people were expelled from Cambodia this morning
PHNOM PENH, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) - The Ministry of Interior on Oct. 28, 2017 ousted 61 Chinese nationals, including 13 women, from Cambodia.

The sources of information from the Ministry of Interior's immigration office told The Irrawaddy this morning that the Chinese nationals were taken into custody from 17 to 21 October 2017 in Phnom Penh, Kandal and Sihanoukville, in connection with fraudulent extortion via VOIP.

The 61 nationals concerned were flown back to China from Phnom Penh on a specially freighted Chinese plane.

Chinese scam suspects took over 11-story block in Cambodia
August 2017
Neighbors in Tuol Kouk, dotted with large villas, described the occupants of the building as quiet. They said it had been rented out to tenants for $25,000 a month. The owner was not available to comment.
The occupants kept to themselves, venturing out only at night to get food, neighbors said. “They were mostly men, some women. Maybe 20, 23 years old. Young,” said Eng Somnang. “When people delivered food to them they were not allowed inside.”

In the past, Chinese fraud suspects have often entered Cambodia on tourist visas, said Uk Haisela, chief of investigation at Cambodia’s immigration department.

The victims of the scammers were often civil servants and retired officials from mainland China, he said.
One of the suspected telephone fraudsters who Uk Haisela interrogated said he made up to $70,000 per week.

Uk Haisela said victims were sometimes blackmailed and the suspects used Cambodia because it was easy to stay in the country and internet speeds were fast.

Cambodia was able to track the gangs with help from China, he said. “China sends IP addresses to us ... Once we make arrests, we report to the Chinese embassy,” Uk Haisela told Reuters.

the moldy russian condo developments on the hillsides of 0Bai in sv should serve as exemplars of the folly of building ghost cities and enclaves outside one's own national borders where speculation is the only real incentive.
