Cambodia expels 1,484 illegal foreigners in 7 months: police

PHNOM PENH, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia has deported 1,484 illegal immigrants to their birth countries within the first seven months of 2015, the National Police's website reported Saturday, citing a senior immigration police officer.

Major General Ouk Hai Seila, director of the General Department of Immigration's investigation and procedure department, said the deportees, including 170 females, are in 42 nationalities. "Up to 1,338 (or 90 percent) of the deportees were illegal Vietnamese immigrants," the website quoted him as saying.

He said since the establishment of the General Department of Immigration in April, 2014, Cambodia has expelled a total of 2,791 illegal foreigners as a census on foreigners is still going on.

Gen. Sok Phal, chief of the General Department of Immigration, said in a meeting last month that it was estimated that at least 160,000 Vietnamese immigrants are living in Cambodia.

Under the kingdom's immigration law, any alien living in Cambodia without valid documents such as passports, visas, or work permits are subject to deportation.
