PHNOM PENH, Cambodia: Cambodia’s government says China requested the arrest of a Frenchman for suspected involvement in a murder case linked to one of China’s biggest political scandals in years.
Cambodian authorities on Tuesday acknowledged that they had arrested Patrick Devillers, but had declined to confirm why. On Wednesdsay, Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said that China had requested Devillers’ arrest because of possible involvement in the murder in China last November of British businessman Neil Heywood.
Kanharith gave no details on Devillers’ alleged involvement, however, and said Cambodia was studying whether or not to extradite him to China.
Heywood had ties to the family of Bo Xilai, the former Communist Party chief of the Chinese city of Chongqing, who was dismissed in April. -- AP
