Lao police on Friday transferred 104 telecommunications fraud suspects to the Chinese side following a handover ceremony held at Wattay International Airport in Lao capital Vientiane.

In the second half of 2017, according to information from the public, together with investigation, Chinese police found that a group of crime suspects were conducting fraud activities in Laos with a huge amount of money involved. Many people were deceived.

Chinese and Lao police have paid great attention to this case and carried out investigation. In December, police from the two countries cracked down on six telecommunications fraud spots in Lao capital Vientiane and Luang Prabang province, arresting 104 suspects.

The suspects have been linked to more than 300 criminal cases, involving a total of over 30 million yuan (about US$4.65 million).

Chinese police sent a team to Laos in 2017 to work with local police. By the end of 2017, they destroyed six dens, arrested 104 suspects and confiscated equipment including bank cards and computers.

The suspects were found to have been masquerading as law enforcement officials to extort money from people in the provinces of Henan and Shaanxi through telephone calls, the ministry said.

The ministry said that such behavior severely damaged the image of police, prosecutors and court officials and infringed on people’s property rights.

In the past years, China and Laos have achieved fruitful results in cooperation of law enforcement and security.
