More than 1,000 Chinese nationals have been arrested and deported from Cambodia since 2012 relating to online scams being run out of Cambodia.

PHNOM PENH — The Chinese government has called on its ally Cambodia to take legal action against Chinese investors who have broken the law, the National Police have said.

On Thursday, police chief Neth Savoeun met Liao Jingrong, head of China’s General Department of International Cooperation, who also requested additional security be provided for Chinese law-abiding citizens in Cambodia.

Kirth Chantharith, police spokesman, could not be reached for comment.

In late February, Yon Min, the Sihanoukville governor, issued a report which alleged that an influx of Chinese tourists and organized criminals had caused instability in the city and led to a shortage of accommodation.

More than 1,000 Chinese nationals have been arrested and deported from Cambodia since 2012 relating to online scams being run out of Cambodia.

Meas Ny, a social researcher, said the “crisis” could lead to discrimination against Chinese in Cambodia. “We cannot survive long and we will lose even our land because we do not get along with anybody. This is currently a crisis for Khmer.”

Cambodia and China have strong ties while China has provided billions of dollars in loans and other development assistance to Phnom Penh in recent years.

All good leaders are working hard to protect their people regardless, accept Hun Sen. He is workings for community interest instead. Poor Cambodians are everywhere scattered all over the world and are being treated less than their value of a human being. Still, Hun Sen can do nothing, but to keep on barking like a mad dog. No moral and no value as a human being.

All he sees is power, money and privilege as a PM of Cambodia but has no idea in term of its value as a good leader dose. Cambodia is finished. Because they are being controlled by communists. Even Hun Sen is finished.

Hun Sen may stink be naive and thinks that he is still a strongman but not. Communists are laughing at him like hell. Strongman?. Who say so? He himself say so, hahaha. Chinese can destroy him in 1 hour, so how can he be strong? Strong enough to destroy his own people but definitely not Chinese or VC Vietnamese.

Shame on you Hun Sen. You must be dreaming. Not even Cambodian are approved of your leadership, how can you call yourself strongman? Strong at what? To only bark like a mad dog, to only ruin her and her reputation? So dumb!
