A police officer at the Department of Counterterrorism and Transnational Crime confirmed that at 11 am, a Chinese man taking a plane to Macau left his suitcase at the airport to avoid paying $80 excess luggage fees. Seeing the abandoned case, the security guards called the CMAC bomb experts to investigate the contents in case there was a bomb inside.

So funny to see CMAC bloke in "protective gear" while all around him are people in plain clothing with no protection.

I think you're wrong, the people in plain clothing came probably after the CMAC bloke declared the suitcase for safe. :beer3:

Chinese pricks can bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in laundered, illegal money, but can't pay $80 in excess baggage fees. Ffs

Perhaps this could be a learning experience and one could realize all Chinese are not the same. It is possible that not all Chinese are rich criminals.

Small time smuggling ?
The Chinese man was detained for questioning, but according to police officers and CMAC officials, the suitcase contained only clothes and coffee.
Strange to be smuggling coffee from Cambodia ? Laos coffee perhaps ? But still, I'd like to know what he had in his other suitcase (the one that weighed 23kgs or whatever the limit is to Macau). :stir:
