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.

Pay-to-stay prison block ‘to mitigate jail overcrowding

Kim Sarom
03 October 2018

The first such facility, built at Phnom Penh’s Prey Sar prison as a model, is set to open early next year. A joint venture between the government and a Cambodian-owned company, the three-storey block would be a far cry from typical prison cells, where scores often share a single latrine."

"“The facility will be managed under the same standards. There will be no air conditioners and no mattresses. Prisoners can pay for bigger space [in the cell]."

“They will have fans like in normal public prisons. Whatever normal prisons have, the new prison block will have the same. This is not a hotel-prison,” he said."

"In 2016, there were around 22,000 inmates, with 7,500 in pre-trial detention. A report released by GDP in February showed that the prison population had ballooned by some 30 per cent last year to 28,414, with more than 10,000 locked up in pre-trial detention."

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
