UPDATE

According to a source from one of Duong Dara's bodyguards, at about 3 o'clock in the morning on January 15, he woke up and heard the sound of the breaking car windshield, and opened the door to see a suspect escaping.

According to the same source, two suspects on a motorcycle stopped nearby and stole the mirrors on both sides of the car before disappearing. Later, the thieves returned and hit the right-hand window with some rocks in order to open the door to steal things in the car, but they did not succeed in the robbery and all of them escaped.

It should be noted that the car was parked in front of the house near the sidewalk, without a fence or any other protection except for the security guard. Image

I'm just shocked that the assistant to the Prime Minister of Cambodia drives an old Lexus and lives in a dumpy shophouse.

I'd figure he'd be in a purple Lamborghini or something.

And according to the article Duong has more than one body guard. But only one noticed something?

They let the thieves make a getaway, not once, but twice? This sounds fishy.

Right, I thought I'd seen him before, (he has an excellent set of teeth). He's the guy who rescued poor old Tom in Kampot on the behalf of HE.
