OVER 200 FRAUD SUSPECTS SENT HOME TO CHINA
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.
