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.

So do they actually keep the cars or do they return them, after a “fine”, until the next time?

$3 You kidding. Lol. More like 'That corrupt policeman (who was getting paid about $60-80 a month, at the time), tried to extort me for 10,000r, but hey ho, I only paid 5000r. That is the correct price. '(Was at the time.) That is actually true, but in my defense, the cops in Sihanoukville would stop you several times a day (at the time.) Things have changed.

I'm not sure that the police are getting paid better wages now, but the Chinese in cars should be better payers than barangs on motos. (And there are more of them. ) And it's not really a shakedown, because if you have a driver's license then you don't pay. When you see how some people drive in Sihanoukville, I think it's a good thing that the police are checking licenses.
