Dying wish fulfilled

Friends and family of the former Secretary-General of the French Embassy, Michel

Cazimajou, fulfilled his dying wish on November 17 by casting his ashes into the

confluence of the Tonle Sap and Mekong River.

Cazimajou, who died aged 51 of cancer in April 1999, worked in Phnom Penh from 1993

till 1997.

His son, David, took his ashes on a tour of the bars he enjoyed during his time in

Phnom Penh: Le Deauville, Martini Pub, Chez Simone, and Sharky's.
