Fifteen foreigners arrested during coastal crackdown

Preah Sihanouk police arrested 15 foreigners in a crackdown on crime during the first four months of 2015, provincial police chief Chhuon Narin said on Friday. “Most of them we found living illegally with expired visas or without passports,” he said.

“Some caused trouble like causing disorder in the town. We have sent all of them to the Immigration Department for further action.” According to statistics released by police, only one of the foreigners was a woman. Seven were Russians, with a Lithuanian, a Slovenian, a Croatian woman, an Englishman, a Korean, an American and one unidentified man.
