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.
They haven't hit my house yet, but reports are coming in from others. Taking passport and visa information, along with the address, but no mention of work permits or questions about employment yet. Though... they're making a list.
No "fees" or anything, but I imagine we'll see a lot more reports of overstayers getting scooped up.
Happens every year here they keep track of where the barangs live, your suppose to register were you live with the local cops, and collect tax/tea money from landlord $5. Painless and a lot more convenient that having to remember to go to them.
"i'm the one who has to die, when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way i want to"
How about they take the boys-in-brown doing this pointless exercise in futility and have them enforcing the traffic laws. It might cut down on accidents and deaths.(but that's too easy!) Is there anyplace in the world where it is actually legal for 4/5/6 on a moto? The police in Snooky have cop bikes, but I never see them stop the jerks that drive down from PP every weekend and drive like they are the only ones on the road. The police set in the same spots only on sunny days and only stop people without helmets or that ran the red light (90% of the drivers here.) The driver of a moto has to have a helmet, but the
passenger(s) don't? Are the three other people riding on the moto immune from head injury? Do drivers always observe the traffic laws on rainy days and violate them only on sunny days and only at designated cop hangouts?
It kind of looks to me like the boys-in-brown are trying to show the foreigners in their country that they are actually doing something that doesn't involve getting a bribe. There is useless policing and productive enforcing of the laws, I see no productivity here.
