Fugitive Cambodian millionaire arrested by PJ in Sintra

“One of the richest men in Cambodia” (according to tabloid Correio da Manhã) has been arrested by PJ police in Sintra, and is now awaiting extradition to Cambodia in jail. Khaou Phallaboth has been on the run from a 20-year sentence for attempted rape and murder. He was tried (twice) in absentia over a convoluted plot to rape and murder the wife and daughter of the country’s then Transport Minister (click here). Say reports, up until now he has spent the last 11 years ‘travelling the world’ evading an international arrest.
