Six caught and released over cock-fight betting

Kampong Cham Provincial Police arrested and later released six men accused of betting on cockfighting after they signed a contract promising not to continue gambling. Sam Heng, deputy chief of the provincial minor crimes bureau, said the six suspects were arrested in Chamkar Leu district’s Bos Khnor commune after being caught betting on a cockfight in a cucumber farm. He said all six were “addicted to cock fighting”, and were briefly detained following their arrest. However, they were released after being educated about the illegal activity.
