Nineteen Japanese men detained in Cambodia in January on suspicion of participating in phone and online scams have been deported.
The group boarded a chartered flight organised by the Japanese government on Tuesday at Phnom Penh International Airport, Cambodian National Police spokesperson General Chhay Kim Khouen disclosed.
The Immigration Police, part of Cambodia’s Ministry of Interior, said that the men were deported because they violated immigration law by living and working in Cambodia illegally.
They will not be allowed to re-enter the country for three years, it said.
Tokyo police obtained arrest warrants for the 19 men on suspicion of running phone scams from Cambodia that targeted people in Japan.
The suspects were taken into custody in the city of Sihanoukville on January 24 and sent to the capital, Phnom Penh, where they were held after being investigated by the interior ministry.
