News from Beijing, China has it that a total of 40 suspects, 35 from the Chinese mainland and five Taiwanese suspects, have been deported from Kenya due to cases of fraud.
China’s Ministry of Public Security said this in a statement issued on Tuesday.
It said the suspects belonged to one of two groups arrested by Kenyan police on November 29, 2014.
The suspects were allegedly involved in over 60 fraud cases worth $600, 000.
Another 36 suspects in the other group were repatriated in April and have been formally arrested.
Reports said the suspects allegedly swindled the money out of mainland residents by pretending to be members of Beijing and Shanghai police.
The two groups were believed to have colluded in fraud activities and mainland police hope to find out all the facts now that they have all suspects in custody. The mainland police have kept their Taiwan counterparts informed of all developments.
