Earlier this month, forty-two Taiwanese nationals, who were deported by Turkey after being 6763296investigated on suspicion of fraud, arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Cambodia canceled its plans to send 17 Taiwanese fraud suspects to China Tuesday afternoon, according to the Ministry of Foreign Relations.

The individuals were only the latest group of Taiwanese arrested overseas threatened with deportation to China. Earlier this year, Kenya was the first country to allow Taiwanese suspects to be put on a flight to China, causing uproar in Taiwan. The Ministry of Justice sent a delegation to China and received the promise of cooperation, but the suspects remained there. A similar response was forthcoming in the case of Taiwanese suspects from Malaysia.

As in the previous cases, Cambodia argues that since all the victims of the alleged scam were citizens of China, that is where the suspects should be sent.     [FULL  STORY]
