Moan about the mail

The Editor,

I am writing this out of a deep concern and sheer frustration

over the poor quality of mail delivery service in Phnom Penh. I have lived in a

village in Thailand for two years and realized that there would be difficulties,

but it was much better than here, although not 100 percent

reliable.

Since July last year, when I came to Phnom Penh, I know that I

have lost nine very important letters.

Of course to us expats, all

letters are important, but "some are more important than others". These were

from family, special friends and my health insurance company. This is the mail I

know of that has never arrived, but I'm sure there were others. In talking with

other people, they have the same frustrations.

I would like to see

something positive done to improve the mail security. In Nepal, the embassies

put pressure on the mail system and it improved.

I have set up a petition

at the CCC agency box room for all interested people, Khmer and expats to sign

if they feel strong about this.

- Janet Riseley, Phnom Penh.
