Out of sight, out of mind.

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.

This is not new.
As LTO mentioned above, it has happened numerous times before over the past umpteen years.
Usually, it happens just before an event. Something like when there are International dignitaries coming to visit the city.

Anything coming up soon that requires a 'clean' look to the city?
I seriously doubt it has anything to do with electioneering.

Not sure I understand. Do you mean forcing the kids or forcing PSE to take the kids?

Import of poor refugees? Perhaps it's a practice run.

its obvious to me;
they want to get all the homeless off the streets to make room for the arrival of the Cambodian migrant workers fleeing thailand

I think they should trade them for Australian refugees.

Seems their rounding up CSWs too:
According to transgender rights activist Sou Sotheavy, more than 20 sex workers were rounded up on Monday night and Tuesday morning by municipal social affairs staff and were being held at the My Chance rehabilitation center.
http://www.cambodiadaily.com/news/round ... ret-61049/
And here's where they have been sent, My Chance:
Cambodia's long-pilloried drug detention centres continue to be hotbeds of violence, sexual abuse and forced labour, and serve more as a place to keep “undesirables” out of sight than as centres of rehabilitation...

I wonder where the other captured women and kids have been sent.

No, but I assume they were probably street walkers.

I saw this one by the old market about 3 pm. I think she was heading down to the Double D Bar.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
