20 June 2012. A French Architect wanted by the Chinese government in connection with Bo Xilai scandal was arrested in Phnom Penh. Cambodian police said the arrest of Patrick Devillers was carried out with the cooperation of Beijing, which is seeking his extradition.
“We’ve been informed by the Cambodian authorities of the arrest of our compatriot Mr. Devillers,” a French embassy spokeswoman told AFP.
Devillers is said to be a close business associate of Bo Xilai and his wife Go Kailai.
Phnom Penh police chief Touch Naruth said, “We are considering whether to send him to China or France. China has demanded he be sent to China because he committed offences there”.
