Taiwanese man abducted in Cambodia, forced to pay ransom for release

Four suspects, including two Chinese nationals, have been arrested for the crime.

A Taiwanese businessman was abducted in Phnom Penh, Cambodia last week by several attackers who have since been arrested.

The victim, 58-year-old Hung Chung-chuo, was suddenly assaulted, forced into a car, and held against his will while in the Cambodian capital on business.

Hung was abducted on June 18 and was released after paying the men US$20,000. According to reports, the attackers initially demanded US$100,000 from Hung and threatened to kill him and discard his body in a river if he did not pay, reports Khmer Times.
