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.

How the hell is Donald Trump going to help them if they don't write it in English so he can read it.
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.

I was in a situation like this once. It was amazing how many of the workers were prepared to keep working for free rather then rock the boat.

Is this a consequence of the online gambling ban ?
So many casinos in Sihanoukville now that the competition must be fierce. Chinese workers with no job will go back to China, but what about the Cambodian casino workers ?

It must be terrible for them, but if the boss has absconded they might just have to forget about it.

Apparenlty all staff are now meant to be paid fortnightly. My Khmer friemd workls for the government and they have switched to fortnightly as well.
Disappearing witht the money is a common occurence in certain industries and amongst certain nationalitles. It is time the governemnt made these businesses keep 1 months payroll on deposit, like a witholding tax
