Cambodia’s notorious adult-entertainment industry will soon be subjected to highter scruitiny and increased policing with the Council of Ministers on Friday passing a sub-decree aimed at cleaning up the seedier side of Cambodia’s nightlife.

Phay Siphan, spokesman for the Council of Ministers, said ministers agreed to pass a draft of the sub-decree last week. Entertainment business such as bars, nightclubs and KTV lounges that are unlicensed, or found to be involved in drug or human trafficing, gang-related activity or under-aged drinking practices will be targeted, he said.

“Now, we have a sub-degree to control the entertainment places. So we hope that it can eliminate a big number of any negative issues,” he said.

Siphan did not detail how authorities would utilise their new powers but said it was an important step in cleaning up the industy’s image.

“These negative activities can be impacting Cambodia’s tourism industry,” he said.

According figures from the Ministry of Tourism, there are 659 entertainment-related businesses throughout Cambodia, provinding more than 11,300 jobs. Of those businesses, nearly 180 are unlicensed.

“There is a small number of businesses that operate and create problems that then negatively affect our society such as exessive noise, attracting gangsters, encouraging students to not study, prostitution, or trading or consuming drugs,” a statement from the Council of Ministers relased Friday says...

Well, there goes the neighborhood. Sounds like just more power to get even more $$$$ from these businesses.

Underage drinking? Impossible! ! There isn't a drinking age in Cambodia!

And they talk about cleaning up the "seedier side of Cambodia's nightlife." Is there a non-seedy side? I'd like to check it out sometime.

Offtopic: hasn't somebody mentioned that they are bringing shishas back? Any news on that?

At the moment it seems a return is in the cards, but it's a question of how they do it without losing face.

Fingers crossed.

I guess the fact that they are announcing a crackdown on nightclubs/KTV joints could possibly speed up the process.

On to the next...hopefully..

1. The Shisha bar near my work is open again already.

2. There does seem to be an advantage in being childish, at last. We're raiding adult venues! Uh, I'm not an adult. Move along, nothing
to see here.
