Gamblers bet it all on not being caught again

Sometimes “education” from Cambodia’s finest just doesn’t stick. So it was on Wednesday after a group of unrepentant gamblers got straight Fs from the local constabulary after going back on their solemn pledge to abstain from games of chance.

Police said they arrested four people during a raid in Kampot’s Teuk Chhou district after the quartet had yet again assembled to break the Kingdom’s prohibition on gambling. Confessing, the group protested that they should be able to do as they please in their own free time. DEUM AMPIL
