All 47 Malaysians detained at Banteay Meanchey Provincial Prison have been released this afternoon after several negotiations with the Cambodian and Malaysian governments. International NGO head Dr Mustapha Ahmad Marican, who confirmed the matter, said the decision to grant the release was made by Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen after finding that all the detainees had been cheated by a job agent syndicate.

“According to Minister in the Cambodian Prime Minister’s Department, we have seen and examined all the things that Malaysian prisoners have been cheated by the job agent syndicate.

“We also see in terms of diplomatic relations between the two countries that have long been established,” he told media outlets when contacted on Friday.

Malaysian authorities confirmed the detention of the 47 Malaysians since December 11 last year on charges of cheating, opening and conducting illegal gambling activities online.

Dr Mustapha said besides the authorities, several Sarawak leaders and assemblymen were also in Cambodia a few days ago to discuss ways to resolve the release of the detainees.

Meanwhile, one of the prisoner’s mother earlier said her son Yusuf Islam with 46 more Malaysians were promised job opportunities with a payable fee of up to US $ 1,500, but all were betrayed in Cambodia.

Malaysian Foreign ministry has official statement regarding the acquittal.
