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.

Cambodian woman jailed for skimpy outfits
Court says Facebook Live streams used to sell clothes and cosmetics amounted to pornography

PHNOM PENH: A Cambodian woman was sentenced to six months in prison on Friday after a court ruled that her Facebook Live streams selling clothing and cosmetics while wearing skimpy outfits amounted to pornography, women’s rights groups said.

Ven Rachna, 39, was arrested in February, two days after Prime Minister HE said in a speech that some online vendors were encouraging sexual assault and disgracing Cambodian culture by wearing scanty outfits.

Having been jailed since her arrest, Rachna will go free early next month, local media reported, with the remainder of her sentence suspended.

Court officials could not be reached for comment, while women’s rights groups were unclear about the release date.

“The big issue here is not the amount of time she spends in prison, but the policies behind her being charged in the first place,” said Ros Sopheap, head of the charity Gender for Development in Cambodia.

“Is this what we classify as pornography now?”

huh?

Opinion piece
Cambodia’s new puritans
A new government department will monitor social media for images of women who, it deems, are dressed too sexily
by David Hutt May 2, 2020
The Cambodian government doesn’t just want to control what its citizens say and think; now it wants to control what they wear. On April 28, the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts launched a new department, the Disciplinary and Accolade Council, which will monitor social media for images of women who, it deems, are dressed too sexily.

Heading up this new puritanical council is Culture Minister Phoeurng Sackona, the front woman of the campaign. But clearly, the initiative is being led by Prime Minister HE.

On February 17, he instructed the government’s Cambodian National Council for Women to track down online vendors and “order them to stop live-streaming until they change to proper clothes.” Dressing provocatively to sell clothes, he claimed, apparently not understanding decades of advertising, “is a violation of our culture and tradition.”
