Chinese Men Arrested for Flying Drone in Royal Palace Grounds

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): On January 13, 2020, at 5:10 pm, Chey Chumneas police detained two Chinese men, CHEN YONG​, 51 years old, and WU MINGQING, 43 years old, for flying a drone in the restricted area at the Royal Palace, Sangkat Chey Chumneas, Phnom Penh. The two Chinese men are staying at WHEN THAI hotel on the street 115/214, Phnom Penh.

The police confiscated a DJI drone, two phones, two batteries, BIKON camera, Bodox flash, a backpack, a drone case, and two passports.
The police reported that the two Chinese men were tourists who visited the Royal Palace and used their drone to fly inside the grounds there to take photos.
It is strictly forbidden to fly drones in and around the area of the Royal Palace (as well as many other sites in Phnom Penh), so police arrested the two men and took them down to the police station for questioning. The same evening, at 8:30 pm, the police sent the Chinese men to the Department of Cybercrime.
