OVER 200 FRAUD SUS­PECTS SENT HOME TO CHINA

Fiji Sun - - Pacific News -

Bei­jing:

Over 200 peo­ple sus­pected of tele­phone and on­line fraud in Cam­bo­dia were repa­tri­ated to Guangzhou, the cap­i­tal of South China’s Guang­dong prov­ince, on Thurs­day. A to­tal of 233 sus­pects were re­leased, demon­strat­ing the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Chi­nese Po­lice and their for­eign coun­ter­parts in fight­ing crime. Ac­cord­ing to a Guang­dong pro­vin­cial depart­ment of pub­lic se­cu­rity state­ment, three char­tered planes car­ry­ing the sus­pects took off from Cam­bo­dia and landed in Guangzhou Baiyun In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The sus­pects were de­tained late last month fol­low­ing a se­ries of spe­cial op­er­a­tions launched by po­lice of­fi­cers from China and Cam­bo­dia af­ter a month-long in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the state­ment said.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion and big data anal­y­sis ear­lier this year in­di­cated that the sus­pects, based in the south­east, had been de­fraud­ing vic­tims based in the main­land.

Fol­low­ing these in­di­ca­tions, Guang­dong’s pub­lic se­cu­rity depart­ment sent spe­cial task forces to Cam­bo­dia and sought Sino-for­eign co-op­er­a­tion in the fight against tele­phone fraud . Po­lice from Guang­dong and Cam­bo­dia also seized a large num­ber of bank cards, com­put­ers, mo­bile phones and other crim­i­nal tools in spe­cial op­er­a­tions in which more than 2000 cases were brought to jus­tice.
