Phnom Penh City Hall Issues Deadline on Signboard Language

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.

I have a feeling this is targeting the chinese businesses. Maybe they have seen what is happening in SHV and are preemptively enforcing rules here before it gets out of hand.
Does anyone have any examples of western businesses that are flouting this law in PP?
There are different requirements to be met. Khmer letters must not only be on the sign but they must be larger than others. Signs may also not portray whatever they like, like Double D Bar learned when they were firmly told to remove a pair of titties from its signage a couple of years ago. I think that particular business is Khmer owned though.
