Child Protection Unit Checks Phnom Penh Bars for Underage Workers

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.

Good on them. :thumb:

They should also post photos from their checks of Karaoke joints and beer gardens.....they did check there also, didn't they? Would be quite negligent if they didn't.

Ok, be that as it may......I'll hold my question for their next fund raising photo news piece.....I hope their canvassing also regularly includes karaoke parlors and beer gardens, (AKA, notorious Khmer style pick-up joints / knocking shops) :thumb:

I don't know if they are really closed or not, but see what you mean. In any case, I'm all for checking out all the places of perdition and making sure that they don't have minors working there.

I would have thought this incident less than 12 mths ago would have alerted a few patrons...post358724.html?hilit=bunny%20bar#p358724

Edit: albeit probably the news didn't go out much further than hostess bars
