On Wednesday, judges from the Phnom Penh Municipal Court demonstrated that in Cambodia, fake money only works in Monopoly.
A counterfeit check landed a former air force officer an 18-month prison sentence.
The complaint was lodged against him by an aggrieved wood seller after he discovered the ex-officer had issued him a phony check for $50,000 for some luxury timber.
The court ordered the defendant to pay the $50,000 for the wood and $10,000 in damages.
