Does it say where they rounded them up from?
But as of Wednesday afternoon, the governmentâ€™s statistics on the roundup were grossly inconsistent with its partner NGOs, and with those of local rights group Licadho, which has been monitoring the effort and says more than 70 people had disappeared from the cityâ€™s streets.
â€œJust 36 people so far have been rounded up,â€ said City Hall spokesman Long Dimanche, by comparison.
â€œThey were already sent to Pour un Sourire dâ€™Enfant,â€ he said.
Truckloads of vagrantsâ€”including women, children and the elderlyâ€”were loaded into trucks Monday. Mr. Dimanche said 33 of the 36 were collected on that first day of the blitz.
However, Pin Sarapich, program director at Pour un Sourire dâ€™Enfant, said City Hallâ€™s claim that 36 people had been taken to his NGO was false...
Am Sam Ath, technical supervisor at Licadho... counted 70 or more people who had disappeared from Phnom Penhâ€™s streets since City Hall announced the round up.
He said the discrepancies in the numbers raised fears about the fate of those who were unaccounted for.
â€œWe are looking for them because we suspect those street people could have been sent to Prey Speu Social Affairs Center,â€ he said, referring to the notorious vocational training center in Pur Senchey district that has come under heavy criticism for allegations of abuse.

It goes on to say that they are going on to target more street sellers and beggars and that this was to ensure safety on the streets, combat human trafficking and to make the city more attractive.
Well, this is wonderful news, tackling the underprivileged whilst ignoring the drug dealing Tuk Tuks and Motodops that hound you along the river front, the fake monks ripping off dumb tourists, the Filipino scammers and that Motodop that offers young girls.
Last night I took a walk along the river area and was approached by at least 6 Tuk Tuks, several of the touts outside of restaurants and several Motodops all offering drugs, a Filipino woman asked me where I bought my shirt (I didn't want to engage), and the smiling fake monk was taking money from foreigners sitting in the restaurants.
Oh yeah, and some fuck in a late model, white Audi screamed up the road with his horn blaring putting everybody at risk.
I am just relieved to know that these 'undesirables' are going to be cleaned up.
This evening I walked along the river front and when I came to the section where the play equipment is I spotted this unkempt guy wanking off. Yes, wanking off in public where children were playing and folk were exercising! It was 6.15pm so still quite light. I've never seen that before in my life anywhere, so was just a bit shocked. He was fully exposed for all the world to see. I looked around to see if there were any of the security guys around - there weren't. Quite a few folk were looking.
I did think about taking his photo, but to be honest, it is not something I really want to see again.
I do wonder if the 'undesirables' along the river might be a better starting point.

I would have liked to see the picture (for the shock value, of course).
