In Brief: Khmer citizenship offered to thais

The government has offered Cambodian citizenship to four Thai nationals by royal decree dated July 14 and signed by King Norodom Sihamoni. A 1996 Law on Nationality states that foreigners can apply for nationalisation only if they have good morality, a clean criminal record and have lived in Cambodia for the past seven years at a permanent address and are able to speak and write Khmer. A Thai embassy spokesman in Phnom Penh said that he has not yet received any information on the Thai nationals being offered citizenship.
