This is another important achievement achieved by the working group of the Ministry of Public Security in the Philippines to carry out police law enforcement cooperation and crack down on cross-border phone fraud.

With the strong support and coordination of the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines, the working group actively cooperated with the Philippine police to carry out crackdown operations in the Clark Freeport Zone of Pampanga Province and Pasay City, Manila, and other places, and successively smashed a number of extraordinarily large phone fraud dens, arrested more than 31,000 criminal suspects involving many countries on the spot, and seized a large number of criminal tools such as mobile phones, computers, voice gateways, and scripts related to fraud. From June to July this year, the Philippine police handed over 6 Chinese suspects to the Jiangsu public security organs in four batches, and from September to October, they handed over 7 Chinese suspects to the Guangxi public security organs in two batches. At present, the case is under further investigation.
The relevant person in charge of the public security organ said that the public security organs will maintain a high-pressure and hard-hitting posture against cross-border phone fraud, continuously increase the intensity of work, strengthen international police law enforcement cooperation, resolutely curb the high incidence of phone fraud cases, and earnestly safeguard the property safety and legitimate rights and interests of the people.
