Posted On: Monday, 7 August 2017

SUVA, 07 AUGUST 2017 (XINHUA) --- A total of 77 suspects in telecom and online fraud cases have been brought back to China from Fiji, according to the Ministry of Public Security. The suspects are accused in more than 50 cases involving over 6 million yuan (US$892,000). On September 22 last year, one of the fraudsters’ victims in northeast China’s Jilin Province was swindled out of 1.3 million yuan (US$193,000) and committed suicide, which triggered large-scale investigations at provincial and state levels. An illegal online gambling and lottery gang was soon uncovered and investigations led directly to more than 200 suspects based in China, Indonesia and Fiji, with nearly 100 million yuan (US$14.8 million) in illegal gains involved. The victims were from over 20 provinces and municipalities across China. Chinese police sent a team to Fiji on July 2 to work with local police. On July 18, they took action, destroying five dens, arresting 77 suspects and confiscating equipment, including mobile phones, computers and bank cards. In the meantime, police busted eight dens and two technical teams, arresting 83 suspects in China.....PACNEWS
