Shake-down ? Deliverymen From Cambodia to Thailand Protest About Increased Customs Fee

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Jul 07, 2019 1:14 am

More greed on the Thai border. It's not just the tourists that get the shake-down when crossing from Cambodia to Thailand. Each border gate in Cambodia seems free to install their own rules and their own prices for goods and people passing through.

Cambodia Breaking News (Battambang): On the morning of July 6, 2019, at 7:15 am, the deliverymen transporting goods to the Thai border blocked the Phnom Dey border gate to protest increased customs fees.

The police said that the people who deliver vegetables at the border blocked the road causing the traffic jam because they were not happy with the new increased customs fee for the delivery service. The police tried to clear the traffic jam and told them to talk to the customs office.
