The sandman never sleeps

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.

Yesterday afternoon, the chief of Koh Kong police’s minor offence office, Lay Meng Laing, said the pair were arrested and were en route to his office. He said he did not know why they were arrested.

“The provincial police chief ordered me to wait and get the two,” Meng Laing said.
Always amazes me how very open corruption and miss use of state forces is in this country.

If the figures in the story are correct, the good senator's aptly named 'special economic zone' has lined his pocket with $35,624,395.00 ... not bad.
