In Brief: Phnom Penh bans Hanging clothes

The

Phnom Penh governor said Monday that people hanging their clothes

outside risk facing legal action. A directive from Kep Chuktema on

Monday informed people that the capital needed to be beautified by

enforcing a clean and fresh look.

"Please people, stop drying

clothes along the sidewalk or in public places ... or the municipality

will use the law to take strict action against anybody who does not

follow the directive," said the governor. "Drying clothes along the

public sidewalks has affected public order, beauty and the environment

in the capital. It gives a bad reputation to the Khmer people, who

upheld a good civilisation."
