Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia News: Local police collaborated with the Office of Special Operations Procedures to detain 12 foreign nationals on the morning of 28 February 2019 at around 9.30am.
The group of foreigners have been accused of conducting unauthorized solicitation of money for a charitable appeal at the market in the village of Tuol Krolanh Chhnang in Kampong Chhnang province.

The detained foreign nationals were a group of young people from many diverse countries such as Indonesia, Nepal, and Kazakhstan. The police took them to the station for questioning, and then instructed them to stop the fundraising before releasing them to go on their way.

Who are the white couple in the left hand upper corner ? They look like "the classic freaking nog characters" to me ! Good riddance cambodia ! The LANGO law to regulate the nog sector slowly shows results.
