Security guards seize 3 Chinese for fake US dollars at Tuol Tumpoung Market

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

June 1, 2018
- On the afternoon of 31 May 2018, three Chinese nationals, two men and a woman, were seized by security guards as they were leaving Tuol Tumpoung Market, and handed over to police.
Image
According to witnesses, the three suspects came to Tuol Tumpoung Market where they bought goods worth $US 200 from a market vendor which was paid for with four $50 notes. But very quickly, after examining the money, the market seller suspected that they were counterfeits. He followed the Chinese buyers as they went to leave the market in their car, and alerted the market security guards who stopped the trio before they could get away.
Image
The suspects were held while the police came to investigate. The money was found to be counterfeit, and the three suspects were taken to the station for questioning by police, followed by legal action.

That's impossible. Most of the stuff going on at night is Chinese. Khmers generally go to sleep soon after sun down. That's when these dudes are waking up from their nap and getting ready to smash around the place and fuck everyone up. And they aren't even polite about it.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Your racism is shining through. Do you just want to alienate those 3 posters or what’s the point you tried to make?

more about behavior than race surely?
and why single me out? anyone who is not blind can see what is happening.
do you not read the other comments here?
perhaps nationalism would be a more accurate slur.
