Over 800 online gambling criminals repatriated to China 


China’s Ministry of Public Security announced on Wednesday that over 800 Chinese nationals implicated in online gambling and telecom fraud have been repatriated from Myanmar.

In a press release, the ministry stated that the repatriation was the outcome of year-long collaborative efforts among Chinese, Thai, and Myanmar law enforcement agencies aimed at combating cross-border telecom fraud and online gambling.

According to the official news agency Xinhua, the ministry has declared its intention to enhance international law enforcement collaboration and maintain a relentless crackdown on such transnational offenses.

In an ongoing effort to combat gambling-related crimes, China, Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos launched a specialized joint operation last August aimed at tackling gambling, fraud, human trafficking, kidnapping, and illegal detention.

Additionally, earlier this year, Myanmar police handed over six alleged key figures in a cyber scam fraud group and four other major crime suspects to Chinese public security authorities.
