Bunny Bar on Street 104 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Raided by Police for Prostitution & Underage Staff

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.

Perhaps you could dish out a whole 75 cents during Happy Hour and ask the owner.

Just heard what happened to Shane.
After the raid they put him in a confessional booth and he is still in there.

As I heard they still have the owners passport and he is $50k lighter with no definitive decision. With the Brit maybe too much evidence past and present to let him out so a reunion with Fletch is in the offing, getting the band back together, behind bars this time.

I heard that the main issue with the owner was that there was an expectation that he checked all ID cards were correct, with the police dying he should have gone to each girls village to ascertain this. I wonder if this is the general expectation or if it was just a story he made up, perhaps @jah steu could she'd light on it. Perhaps bunny bar will stick to employing over 30s now.

If the owner was let out on bail for medical reasons there must be one hell of a big prison hospital bill. You don't get the luxury of a prison hospital without some demand for money you would think.

Anyone have any insight on this expense to be let out on medical grounds?

Strange to be let out on bail without some restrictions on your activities. ie dont go anywhere near 104st and certainly don't open up your bar again till all issues surrounding it are sorted.

I guess it is The Kingdom of Wonder!!!

seems extremely murky to me
why would the police let either of them out if they had solid evidence of guilt?
apart from the $50k that is, which the brit probably doesn't have
is there now a claim that the underage girls had fake ids?
who is claiming that, and is it true, or were they not actually underage?
why would you re-open your bar if you were just temporarily bailed?
especially on what's effectively a child-prostitution charge?
