Kratie province, Cambodia News: Some citizens of Kratie are complaining about gambling games that are springing up all over the province, often in small villages and market towns. Reports of gambling operations have come in from Kaizi market and Ou Teuk Thla village, Snoul, from Kampi market and in front of Wat Kaing, and the gamblers are said to come from all over.
The bosses running these games are said to be doing a brisk business, and raking in millions of riel from men and women who cannot resist the gambling lure. Most of the players are poor and do not have much to lose, but they still come away poorer than when they arrived.

People say that reports to the police were ineffective, and it is suspected that they may be deliberately turning a blind eye. This is why a number of citizens have challenged the local journalists to investigate.
