Casino work halted

A Thai provincial governor has banned the movement of building materials from Thailand

to a new casino complex under construction in Cambodia, next to the border checkpoint

in Si Sa Ket province.

The ban was requested by the military for security reasons, as the border in this

area has not been officially demarcated since markers were removed during skirmishes

in the 1980s.

The casino site is 150m from a temporary border line set by mutual agreement. A memorandum

of understanding in June 2000 prohibited new construction without the agreement of

both sides until the line has been clearly established.

The casino is being built by a unit of Star Vegas Co, which operates another casnino

in Poipet.
