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.

Indian Snake Oil Salesman Tastes Prey Sar Water

Post by Mishmash »

Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday placed an Indian national in pre-trial detention on chargers of producing medicine without authorisation and producing counterfeit medicine.

Maj Bunsong noted that Ministry of Health officials seized counterfeit medicine, which were produced by the accused and sold in markets in the city.

“He was arrested after police discovered that he had produced medicine without authorisation from the Ministry of Health, and also produced fake medicine,” Maj Bunsong said. “Between January to October this year, Mr Royal Batique had been producing many kinds of medicine, such as for arthritis of the hands and feet, hypertension and diabetes, and distributed them to local pharmacies.”

Would YOU buy from this man????

I wonder if his arthritis cure-all will work for him in his cramped cell..

He'll need it for his off-the scale hypertension no doubt.

2 or 3 years back I genuinely witnessed a snake oil salesmans pitch out in the provinces (I thought they had died out with wild west shows and OK corral shootouts). The troupe even rocked up in the equivalent of a covered wagon.
It was a full, stage lit evening production, with a warm up act of real live king cobras being handled, with the bonus of a couple of "sexy ladies" dancing in the sidelines.
There then followed the main event, a demonstration of the "miracle medicine" (in liquid form, even though the product being sold was tablets) which after being introduced in two stages to a beaker of "bad blood" (blood is dark blue when it's bad, apparently), miraculously changed the colour of the bad blood from blue to clear, and then from clear to red.
On completion of the show/demonstration the locals were falling over themselves to buy this miracle cure.
