A total of 143 suspects in cross-border telecom and online fraud cases have been brought back to China from Indonesia, according to the Ministry of Public Security on Friday.

The cases cover several provincial level regions of China and involve more than 20 million yuan (2.98 million U.S. dollars), said the ministry.

The ministry said that suspects were first located in Indonesia and Chinese police from Tianjin, Hunan, Jilin and Sichuan went to Indonesia for an investigation.

On July 29, police from both China and Indonesia took action to destroy five dens, arrest 153 suspects, and confiscate tools used for criminal purposes, including PCs and bank cards.

Of the suspects, 143 were brought back to China and 10 remained in Indonesia for investigation.

The ministry said that telecom and online fraud by pretending to be police, prosecutors and court officials severely infringed on people's property right and interests.

It said that Chinese police will maintain a tough crackdown on such crimes, enhance cooperation with other countries, and bring criminals to justice.
