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.

Lotsa different types. Fake investments, with "real" websites to back them up or the "let me show your wife our online pornographic exchange" type.

I am at a loss for words.

[ Munch, munch. ]

I can't fathom the depth of this story, or that tattooed ladie's shorts.

[ Crunch, crunch. ]

Those dudes are all mainlad Chinese or Chinese multi-nationalities? Wtheck?

[ Gobb gobb. ]

Aahhh... Com [ urr ] fusing. [ Smacks lips. ]

Hey, can we order more dim sum?

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

Officers body-searched the VoIP culprits before allowing them to board their charter flight back to China.

for sure a lot of online casino workers are in this.
even if they have legal docs to work here, for a company with a casino license- they are breaking Chinese law.
Chinese LEO solves the jurisdictional problem by revoking their passports.
SV is going to pop with a bang like krakatoa when this really flows through.

didn't anyone notice the giant casinos are empty down there?
because all the business is online, and yes- likely a lot of fraud and laundering going on there.

100% agree, Frank

When, not if, the Chinese authorities come down hard on these scammers, plenty are going to get burnt.

Fair play to the Cambodian authorities for actually getting stuck in and doing their part.

I arrive in SKV on Friday, so if they could get it all sorted before then, that'd be lovely, please!

Good on the police for doing something about the Chinese.
