Three brokers were arrested last Friday after allegedly attempting to illegally smuggle nine Cambodians, including an infant, across the Thai border.

They were charged a day later with human trafficking. Lured with promises of employment in Thailand, the group was attempting to illegally cross the border on motos when they were stopped by police in Battambang’s Sampov Loun district.

After being stopped, they pointed out the three brokers who were awaiting the group, said Lach Bros, chief of the provincial military police criminal office.

The workers, who were briefly detained, were released after promising police they wouldn’t make the risky crossing again.
