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.

Foreigner death tally and deportations 2016 - official figures.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Feb 23, 2017 5:32 pm

23 February 2017
Sen David

The Interior Ministry’s annual report, published yesterday, revealed that 113 foreigners died in Cambodia last year, while 73 others were injured.

The deceased foreigners, who included Chinese, American, Vietnamese, South Korean and UK nationals, succumbed to diseases and traffic accidents, or died by suicide, murder or drowning, the report said.

In addition to foreigner deaths and injuries, the report showed that Cambodia deported 2,998 foreigners in 2016. The figure marked a decrease in deportations from 2015, when 4,224 foreigners were deported.

Most of those deported were living in Cambodia illegally. The report singled out Vietnam as a persistent source of illegal immigration. “Even if we deport foreigners who are in Cambodia illegally, foreigners, especially Vietnamese, continue to live in Cambodia illegally,” it reads.

Last August, a progress report on the ministry’s “foreigner census” program launched in 2014 claimed 76,000 foreign nationals had residency or citizenship documents with “irregularities”.

Interior Minister Sar Kheng said yesterday that authorities will attempt to better regulate immigration by making data on foreigners easily available electronically.

Different take on the same subject:
Misbehaving foreigners banned
Pech Sotheary Thursday, 23 February 2017

More than 3,500 foreigners committed immigration offenses last year and more than 800 were banned from returning to Cambodia, the Interior Ministry’s report for 2016 said yesterday.
The report, which also sets directions for 2017, said 322 foreigners were involved in criminal cases and 53 were barred from entering the country.

Immigration offenses included unclear purpose of travel, being on a list of names banned from entering Cambodia, using fake passports and visas and having expired passports.

Crimes included the use of fake US dollars, and smuggling phones, rhino horns and drugs.
Others came to the country after committing economic crimes in China or arrived with a gun magazine in their bag.

Crimes also included falsifying public documents, illegal marriage, illegal drug use and trafficking, use of violence, human trafficking and detention, fraud and cheating, sexual abuse of children and causing traffic accidents.
Others sold pornography, raised money illegally, kidnapped for ransom using technology, ran internet betting or committed transnational crimes.

The report added that 113 foreigners died from disease, traffic accidents, suicide, murders or drowning and 73 foreigners were injured in accidents.

He said: “Meanwhile, immigration police have cooperated with authorities at all levels to conduct research, arrest and expel immigrants from the country amounting to nearly 3,000 people in 2016.”
However, the ministry says that, through the direction for 2017, it will strengthen visa provisions and border passes at the international border gates.

Foreigners who apply to marry Cambodian people would be identified and immigrants would be managed properly.

Crime target data would be checked and illegal foreigners who intend to come to Cambodia would be monitored.
