3 Dutchmen arrested for filming with drone in restricted area, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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.

These kids will be fine. They don't have form like dickhead Ricketson. Their Embassy will sort this out I think. Cambodian government does not want to look too draconian, will affect western relations. That's my guess, let's see...

I guess there's a "no drone" local law. Back in 2015 two Westerners were detained and then released later in the day for flying a drone near the Prime Minister's house. They signed an agreement saying they wouldn't do it again.

In November 2015, a Chinese tourist was arrested and released for flying a drone near the palace. He also had to sign an agreement not to do it again.

Later the same month, three Vietnamese tourists were treated similarly when caught flying a drone near the palace.

In March 2017, a Taiwanese tourist was "educated and released" for flying a drone near the palace.

So the precedent here seems to be catch and release, at least for non-spies caught flying drones in sensitive areas. I don't know what kind of media these guys are involved with but that may work against them.

I wonder if the same rule would apply if you flew a drone without camera function?
