In Brief: Gambling directive not aired, says PM

Prime

Minister Hun Sen blasted national and private television companies on

Monday for not broadcasting his directive on the regulation of gambling

machines. "I issued the directive on December 5, but broadcasts only

started on December 19," the premier said Monday during a graduation

ceremony at the National Institute of Education. The directive states

that all Cambodians are forbidden to play slot machines and that all

stand alone machines must be fully licensed and kept only in private

rooms at hotel and leisure complexes.
