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.

Malaysian fugitive financier Jho Low has Cyprus passport, bought villa on Mediterranean island: Report
Published 5 hours ago

NICOSIA - Fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho has a passport from Cyprus, a newspaper on the island has reported, even as Malaysian police said on Monday (Nov 4) that they are keen to bring him home to face justice over the 1MDB scandal.

Cyprus is an island nation in the Mediterranean, located to the south of Turkey and west of Lebanon.

Low, who is widely known as Jho Low, obtained the Cypriot passport four years ago, the daily Politis, which is published in Cyprus, reported on Sunday.

It said Low, "perhaps the most sought-after businessman on the planet in the last 4 years, is a Cypriot national".
