Laos arrests & deports 462 Chinese nationals for crimes including human trafficking related to Golden Triangle Special Economic Zone operations

"Laos deports 462 Chinese nationals with alleged ties to Bokeo scam rings", 5 December 2023

Authorities in Laos have deported 462 Chinese nationals arrested for crimes, including human trafficking, from the lawless Golden Triangle Special Economic Zone in the country’s north that has been described as a de-facto Chinese colony, according to officials.


The latest round of arrests and deportations of Chinese nationals follows one in mid-September, when Lao authorities sent 164 home, including 46 who were arrested in the Bokeo SEZ, another economic zone in the province operated by a Chinese tycoon who the U.S. government has sanctioned for running a human trafficking network.
