300 Arrested in Massive Police Drug Raid at Rock Entertainment Center, Phnom Penh (VIDEO)

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.

Why are people so cynical when it comes to things like this? I don't do drugs and have no affiliation with any aspect of the drugs trade in Cambodia, but I do know that the police in my own country carry out similar raids in establishments where drugs are known to circulate, as I'm sure they do in most countries.

Why, when they do it in Cambodia, do people love to insinuate that there must be something more to the story? Why can't people accept that it's nothing more than the police simply doing their job. As all police forces all around the world do. They get a tip off, they investigate, and they decide the place is worth raiding.

Why the cynicism?

KOW is ruled by powerful elites.

If the elites aren’t involved, justice works, kind of.

Notice all the street justice out there?

This is the country where the cops stop the wrong car for almost wiping out motos on the road and then need to apologize to the driver, if it’s a high up that gets stopped.

This place that was raided belonged to a well known high up. It was well known.

Means that either even someone higher ordered the raid or someone has risked is career, his livelihood, and/or his family’s well being to do this.

39 kg of drugs seized in one night ?

That must be a few less accidents involving Lexuses and high-tripping locals on early morning in town....I guess this club also supplies a fair part of the grim news of each week ?

It's just a bit of a seedy shithole these days, the rock. Has been for a long time. The elite now go elsewhere.

I wouldn't be surprised if the owner knew of the raid in advance and let it happen.

Jeebus, that's quite a haul.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
