Over 30 Chinese nationals accused of operating a scam using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) were arrested in three districts of Phnom Penh on Monday, a police report has confirmed.
The suspects were arrested at three different buildings —the Helina Hotel, Mekong View Tower and Diamond Serviced Apartments—in Chamkar Mon, Chroy Changvar and Prampi Makara districts, respectively. They were sent to the immigration department “to carry out the legal procedure.”
The arrests were the result of cooperation between municipal immigration police, Chinese authorities, and the ministry’s immigration department. Prior to these arrests, 74 Chinese nationals accused of running a VoIP exhortation scam were extradited to China.
