Cambodian police said that the Department of Immigration expelled 61 Chinese suspects, including 13 women, who allegedly made phone calls to people in China cheating victims out of money by pretending to be law enforcement officers or with falsely promised high-return investments.

They were captured in campaigns from October 17-21 in Phnom Penh, Kandal and Preah Sihanouk.

The police also had 74 suspects caught and repatriated from Cambodia in another operation early October. 

Cambodia has been chosen as a destination for carrying out crime activities, including money extortion. Cambodian authorities are promoting campaigns to capture hundreds of suspects. Source from Vietnamnews.
