Myanmar police hand over 352 telecom fraud suspects to China


China's Ministry of Public Security on Monday said that Myanmar police had repatriated 352 Chinese nationals suspected of telecom fraud to China on March 31.

In the first joint law enforcement operation between Chinese and Myanmar police in the region of Muse, northern Myanmar, a total of 807 suspects engaged in cross-border telecom fraud were arrested.

Among those, 352 were Chinese nationals, while 455 were Myanmar citizens who were handled by the Myanmar police.

All suspects and pieces of evidence have been handed over to China through the Ruili border crossing in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

Among the suspects are 21 alleged masterminds, organizers, or key members, as well as 51 fugitives.

A total of 48,000 suspects have been transferred from Myanmar to Chinese custody in a crackdown on telecom fraud originating from northern Myanmar since last year.

Chinese public security authorities have vowed to maintain high-pressure crackdowns on telecom fraud groups, deepen border law enforcement cooperation with relevant countries and regions, organize joint crackdown operations, and resolutely safeguard the safety and legitimate interests of the people.
