admissions to Angkor Wat, according to an official. "[Sok An] will be

parliamentarians," Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said

Son Chhay sent a letter to Heng Samrin, president of the National

Assembly, on Thursday, calling on Sok An to answer questions relating

to  Angkor Wat tourist revenues, in addition to the issues of night
