Three fake monks held for drinking wine

Police in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district arrested three fake monks for drinking wine on Tuesday. “They are not real monks,” said Choam Chao commune police chief Mam Hor. “They pretend to be monks to make money and get food from people,” adding that the arrest followed reports by people in Thmar Kol village who saw the men drinking. The three men arrived in Phnom Penh from Prey Veng province four months ago and are currently being detained in Dangkor district police headquarters, Mam Hor said.
