Three Chinese Arrested in Laos for Passing Counterfeit Currency

Police in Laos this week arrested three Chinese nationals for trying to buy holiday clothing with counterfeit bills that a shopkeeper had noticed were marked by smeared ink, causing her to contact authorities, sources in Laos said.

The suspects, two men and a woman, had recently arrived in Laos from southern China’s Yunnan province and are being questioned but have not yet been formally charged, a police officer in Luang Prabang city told RFA’s Lao Service on Wednesday.
