Rising crimes rock Sihanoukville: Provincial governor orders tough response
Ben Sokhean / Khmer Times

Amid rising crimes over the past weeks across the coastal city of Sihanoukville, Preah Sihanouk provincial governor Kuoch Chamroeun yesterday issued an order for joint forces to take urgent action to control the situation through effective crackdowns.

His order was made after reports of increasing crimes across the province, especially in Sihanoukville. The latest incident happed (sic) on Sunday when a group of suspects engaged in a gunfight in Pi commune, resulting in a bystander tuk tuk driver being killed and two police officers badly injured.

In response to the situation, Chamroeun led a Provincial Administrative Unity Command meeting with the participation of the provincial police chief, commander of the provincial military, commander of the military police as well as district governors and relevant department representatives to handle the ongoing challenge.

“He ordered the forces to carry out operations to monitor and crack down on various crimes in Sihanoukville, such as illegal possession and use of weapons, drug offences, theft and other acts affecting social security,” said a provincial hall statement.

When more and more come, crime will rise, then will it come too can't cope? When the Chinese police and army move in I move out.

In my humble opinion, they need to think more about proactive solutions rather than boosting reactive ones.

Are you suggesting they stop the Chinese from entering the country?

Yep, that should fix it. :thumb:

Wouldn't say that... :| but they could rethink the plan for the city, how many casino licences have been issued there, the type of clientele it attracts and the associated vice it draws.

Any Chinese seeing what’s going on will be spurred to come and see what they’re missing out on. It’s how their brains work.

It’ll get much worse before it gets “better”.

“Progress”

Have I read it wrong. The guy was just in the wrong place. It wasn’t a hit or road rage?

Either way I hope the perps are caught no matter who they are.
