400 People Detained for Drugs in Mass Raid on Luxurious Club in Phnom Penh

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Quote from PPP article:
We need to investigate the case first. We are aware the public would like to know who the club’s owner is, like with the raid on the Rock [Entertainment Centre], where the owner was an Oknha.
Only in Cambodia could the owner not be known to any of the authorities

Fine outstanding citizens in a club at 2am on a week night. Obviously few of them actually work for a living. Do barangs go there? I think not.

whats the big fucking deal?

i am sure you visit any high profile clubs, ANYWHERE, you will find a certain % of the clients are on or in possession of drugs and possibly holding guns
BUT as this is SE Asia
I read this as a shake down and someone did not get their envelope on time

Totally agree. As do the statistics. Nightclubs are raided all over the world, all of the time and almost always, drugs are found and arrests are made, because drugs are illegal. Nothing new there.

So, you're saying that unlike the rest of the world, authorities in SE Asia couldn't care less about drugs?

The big deal is 400 people being arrested, I've never heard of such a big number. The other big deal is that these busts are netting huge amounts of narcotics, 50 kg in Rock, 10kg in Miami Club, and whatever big amount here too. It's not just about a few clubbers getting high.

Club drug bust sees 17 sent to court
11 June 2019
Following the arrest of 408 people who tested positive for drugs at a raid on Phnom Penh’s Luxurious nightclub on Saturday, 17 suspects will be sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday.

Most of the rest were sent to drug rehabilitation centres, while the foreigners are to be deported from the country. The club’s owner, meanwhile, remains at large.
