Accused broker busted on way to Thai border

Police in Kampong Cham province on Tuesday night arrested an alleged broker and 11 Cam­bodian workers ready to illeg­ally cross the Thai border to find jobs, police officials said.

Chhay Kimson, Kampong Cham police chief, said that police stopped the workers’ truck in the province’s Dambe district in the middle of the night while the truck was heading to Thailand.

He said that among the workers, all young men, five came from Kratie province and six came from Kampong Cham.

Police edu­cated the workers about the dangers of illegal jobs abroad before releasing them and sent the accused broker, Srey Sophy, 33, a Kratie native, to court.

Thy Somalai, ADHOC representative from Kampong Cham, said that brokers lure villagers by promising high salaries while failing to provide them with adequate informa­tion about potentially danger­ous work abroad.
