GUANGZHOU - Malaysian police repatriated 97 telecom fraud suspects, including 32 from Taiwan, to the Chinese mainland on Saturday.

In late March, Malaysian and Chinese mainland police cooperated in an investigation into five transnational telecommunication fraud cases involving victims from across the mainland, and arrested a total of 117 Chinese suspects, including 65 from the mainland, 52 from Taiwan.

Among the 52 from Taiwan, 20 were transferred to Taiwan authorities by Malaysian police on April 15.

The Chinese government requested Malaysia to transfer the rest of the suspects to the mainland as all the victims of the fraud trap are mainland residents.

The mainland has invited Taiwan police to cooperate in handling the case, according to the Ministry of Public Security.
