Cambodia to deport Taiwan telecoms fraud suspects to China

By Prak Chan Thul PHNOM PENH (Reuters) – Cambodia will deport 21 Taiwan nationals to China, a senior Cambodian official said on Monday, ignoring attempts by Taiwanese officials to have them returned instead to Taiwan. Cambodia does not have official relations with self-ruled Taiwan and considers the island part of “one China”, in line with Beijing which considers the island a breakaway province. Cambodia detained the 21 Taiwanese along with 14 Chinese nationals in coordination with Chinese authorities who are attempting to halt the proliferation of internet and phone extortion scams that have cost billions of dollars and driven some victims to suicide.
