I want to place my bets before gambling finishes at the end of the year.

The short guy dresses like a Chinese man, face and haircut like a Chinese man and the destination for the package was China.
But the smug look on his face says ,, these bones are from a old cow that was slaughtered in the market .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: Two Vietnamese nationals, both male, have been sent to appear before the Phnom Penh Court in the case of the cargo of 282,66kg rare animal bones that were seized on December 27, 2019, at Phnom Penh International Airport.
According to the social media page of Wildlife Alliance Cambodia, the cases that were seized with a smuggled shipment of 281 kg of suspected lion bones in Cambodia last year, after being shipped from South Africa, were opened today by Cambodian officials.

Two Vietnamese nationals who claimed ownership of the shipment are in jail and being investigated by the Cambodian customs office. Cambodia is a well known transit country in the illegal wildlife trade for products heading to Vietnam and China to be used in traditional medicine.
