In Brief: Sok An to address revenue concerns

Deputy Prime Minster and

Chairman of Apsara Authority Sok An will appear in the National

Assembly next week to address concerns about the revenue gathered from

admissions to Angkor Wat, according to an official. "[Sok An] will be

appearing in the National Assembly to answer all the concerns of

parliamentarians," Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said

Sunday. "It's a good chance to put the opposition party's doubts and

criticism against the government to rest." Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker

Son Chhay sent a letter to Heng Samrin, president of the National

Assembly, on Thursday, calling on Sok An to answer questions relating

to  Angkor Wat tourist revenues, in addition to the issues of night

lighting and temple conservation.
