WOW: Unconfirmed report saying that Prime Minister HE

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.

From his FB page here is what Singapore minister George Yeo ate for lunch today in Phnom Penh. He doesn't mention anyone being dead. Or maybe he just didn't think it was as important as photographing his soup.

I love the idea that rich people cannot be persuaded to lie...even for money...

looking thru the data , I don't see any edits or anything out of place as far as time stamps an i seriously doubt someone such as a Cambodian photographer would be bothered doing that and if they were bothered they could easily have removed all meta data

My views,
He left for Singapore last night an someone started a rumor he had a heart attack, why? who knows
If you look in that meta data, it shows Photoshop, meaning at least SOME editing was done. Changing the take date on a photo isn't rocket surgery either... you can literally just do it in windows photo gallery. and why remove it in case someone says they've seen it previously now you can say "no, look at the date!" And while a photographer may not bother, a PR official inside the government easily has reason to do so in many cases. Generally one should never rely on that data.

It's over. HE is fine and the photos of him are legit.

Correct, I was just making a general statement on the trusting of metadata from any government provided photographs... they have the people who can make them appear to be from any date, and if so motivated wouldn't hesitate to do so.
