In the first case of its kind, 222 illegal Chinese immigrants arrested last month
in Phnom Penh's Toul Kork district will be tried in Phnom Penh municipal court for
illegal entry into the Kingdom. The trial will take place on Sep 20.
Monday's mass trial will mark the first time that illegal Chinese immigrants have
faced Cambodian justice. The Chinese illegals face imprisonment for up to five months,
after which they will deported back to China.
