The Cambodian Consulate General in China’s Chongqing municipality, in cooperation with Chinese authorities, rescued 12 Cambodian women who had been trafficked there.
According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation spokesman Koy Kuong, the 12 women will be repatriated to Cambodia on September 2 at 3:30 PM via Flight K6669.
In a separate case, Kuong said the Cambodian Consulate General in Thailand on August 26 also helped repatriate 21 Cambodian people from different parts of Thailand.
They were sent back via Poipet International Border Checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province and have since been placed under quarantine.
But the spokesman did not confirm whether the 21 people had been trafficked or simply sought to return home after losing their jobs as is the case with thousands of migrant workers who have recently flocked from Thailand amid Covid-19 outbreaks there.
