Widespread Immigration Raids Target Foreigners Working Illegally in Phnom Penh

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.

All Khan Toul Kok, or nearby.
A variety of industries.
Locally instigated? Or just getting started here?

Immigration and MoLVT officials have been inspecting hundreds of businesses in the past couple of months, massive crack down.

However, they are not arresting and/or fining the employees caught working without the relevant documents, but the business owners, and giving the employees a warning and deadline to get their documentation in order.
Interesting , that is actually the best course of action they could take.
Filipinos are not all maids or English teachers , I've met quite a few who were in marketing or business/accounting or various supervisory positions.

Anybody know what the going tariffs are for employers when found with “illegals” or “non-conforming”???

Is there a long holiday coming up??
