Chinese Passenger’s Excess Baggage Causes Siem Reap Bomb Scare

Siem Reap):  On the afternoon of May 30, 2019, a Chinese man was detained for questioning after throwing away his suitcase at the airport, causing panic and a bomb threat.

The man named Li Chunlin threw his suitcase at the Siem Reap International Airport because he was charged more than $80 in excess fees.

Airport staff called in officers from CMAC for a quick check-up over fears there was a bomb inside the luggage (*the report doesn’t make clear whether this is what the angry passenger told them or not).

According to police officers and CMAC officials, only clothes and coffee were inside the suitcase.

A police officer at the Department of Counterterrorism and Transnational Crime also confirmed that the incident occurred at 11 am.

The Chinese man was taking a plane to Macau, but because of the excess baggage of the airport charging him $80, dumped the suitcase.
