A Chinese welder, 48, who is suspected of attempting to launder money was arrested by Phnom Penh municipal authorities on Wednesday night after he was found entering Cambodia with $855,000.
The Chinese national was detained at Phnom Penh International Airport after he was found attempting to smuggle the cash into Cambodia from Hong Kong.
General Department of Immigration spokesman Keo Vanthorn told The Post on Thursday that the man would appear in court on Friday. Authorities were investigating further to find others involved, he added.
