Sihanoukville, Cambodia News: On August 21, 2018, at 8 pm, the police received a report that there were kidnapping victims being held in room no. 8301 at Oriental Pearl Casino in Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville.

After receiving the information, the police went to the casino to check the room no. 8301, where they released 3 Chinese victims, who were identified as LI SHI GUO, 45 years old, YU GUO, 33 years old, and GUO HOU XIANG, 34 years old. The victims had been held captive for a week by the kidnappers.

The five suspects arrested for the kidnapping and extortion were also of Chinese nationality : LI YAO FENG, 30-years-old, JIANG HUA YANG, 25-years-old, LI YANG, 32 years old, FAN BAO GUO, 39 years old, and 23-year-old LI YU GUO . The suspects are Chinese loan sharks, lending money to Chinese casino gamblers in Sihanoukville.

The victims went play at the casino and lost all their money, so they borrowed money from the suspects. When the victims had no money to pay them back, the suspects kidnapped the victims, and made them contact their families to ask them to send money for their release.

The suspects have been detained at the police station to follow the appropriate legal action.

Scroll down to the similar topics below and you'll see this type of thing is becoming quite regular. There can't be a course for how to kidnap someone as they don't seem successful.

If these 'loan-sharks' are lending to Chinese guys who have no money, it's possible that their family in China don't have any money either. Can't get blood out of a stone.

Depends if they are tourists, or construction workers with a gambling habit. (Less precious. :mrgreen: )

Surely it's much easier just to break people's legs. No respect for tradition.

this will continue until the PRC puts boots on the ground to work with local authorities.
this will give them considerable intelligence gathering capacity and more influence within a military aligned agency.

Does anyone really want to have the PRC security apparatus take over the KOW? Remember, these are the guys famous for creating the digital Great Wall barrier, forcing companies to install spy chips in their cell phones, and requiring all citizens to register with the local police in order to have Internet?
