So the official line is the video was produced and uploaded in China?
It's still unclear what the official line is.
Latest report on the incident from Fresh News says they are still searching for the culprits, but doesn't mention whether in Cambodia or China.

Another news source says that arrests have been made in China.

False flag to get the Chinese cops there on a permanent basis?

Breaking news: An unconfirmed report says that Chinese police have arrested a Chinese man who posted a bragging video of the insecurity in Sihanoukville.
According to a source close to the Chinese embassy in Cambodia, a Chinese man who posted the video clip threatening Sihanoukville's security was arrested by police in China on May 13, 2019.

After the arrest, the suspect confessed to filming and posting the video, and has been charged for their crime.

However, sources close to the embassy confirmed that the Chinese authorities would send the suspects to Cambodia to hand over to Cambodian developers to continue to help building the casinos

interesting read in the south china post
In recent years, Chinese developers have built more than 100 casinos and dozens of hotels and resorts in the province, situated on Cambodia’s southwestern coast.

In a video circulated on Facebook, a Chinese man speaks to the camera while surrounded by about 20 other Chinese men, some of them sporting tattoos and cheering.

“Kampong Som, in the next three years, whether it will be safe or chaotic is under my control,” the leader declares in Mandarin, referring to Preah Sihanouk by its alternative name.

UPDATE at 8:13PM, 14 May 2019

From the National Cambodian Police website tonight:
On May 14, 2019, the National Police Chief confirmed, after collaborating closely with the Chinese side to investigate this case, that the video clip posted on social media, featuring threats of insecurity in Sihanoukville, was in fact made in China.
After research, and with the cooperation of the Chinese police, the Cambodian authorities have determined that none of the gang members featured in the video are present in Sihanoukville or anywhere in the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Khmer press article on Cambodian concerns about the Chinese, following the uproar caused by Chinese "gangster video".
To put the following article in context, it was published by a Khmer press outlet the day before the announcement by the authorities that the Chinese gangster video was actually made in China. However, it gives an insight into the rising concern of Cambodian citizens about Chinese lawlessness in Sihanoukville and Cambodia.

Some Chinese build up?

Some weaponry that Cambodia cops have captured from the Chinese in the past

- Reprehensible actions by some Chinese nationals on Cambodian territory have triggered great concern. These include acts of violence, murder, intimidation, gambling, drinking, driving, disobedience, drug trafficking, and extortion. Preah Sihanouk Province is the hottest hot spot for the Chinese.

In a video clip, a group of Chinese have declared an insecurity warning in Sihanoukville, seeming to have taken control of the entire province. They are not afraid to ignore the law.
Surprise! How do they dare to do this ?

Nowadays, Cambodians are worried and are becoming more and more alert because some Chinese people are constantly struggling to keep up with each other. The latest report shows that in the first three months of the year 2019, the Chinese were the number one criminal offenders in Cambodia.(sic)

In fact, the Chinese are not all bad and frightening. Some are respectable and worthy of being exemplary. For Chinese wrongdoers, they should be embarrassed when they commit these crimes because their country is supposed to be an advanced, prosperous, and civilized country; a country of many scholars that from ancient times developed theories of morality and virtue. Khmer people do not discriminate against any nation, but they do not welcome disgusting people.

However, we observe that the Cambodian Government and the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia have confirmed their efforts to prevent this phenomenon caused by the Chinese.
The governments, as well as local authorities, must take action and enforce Cambodian laws on Chinese and other foreigners so they will be scared and stop thinking that Cambodia is a land where they can easily commit crimes.
In fact, people are really sick of seeing foreigners, especially some Chinese, who seem to be willing and proud to commit crimes without fear of Cambodian law.

The government must crack down on anarchic aliens to increase confidence for Cambodian citizens.

Surely this isn't just about the chinese people per se?

Rather, isn't it about the vice in Sihanoukville...how it's become a casino town with associated gambling, loan sharking, drugs and prostitution etc. Seems to me organised crime and gangs etc will follow where the flow of money is....unless it's properly regulated..

I wonder what the outcome might have been if it had just been a beach resort town serving mainly chinese tourists minus the casinos.
