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.

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

The loooong arm. Pluck
Does anyone know what happened to all the other Thai high rankers that were running this murderous major slave smuggling operation?
Charges quiety dropped? Early released?

Or not? There was big-time UN/international weight for Thailand to shut it down and to follow "international conventions", so maybe all those admirals and generals will still be languishing for a while yet.
