THE owner of a Kampot province casino was arrested by military police on Tuesday on charges of illegal gun possession, drug possession, and indecent acts.

Lim Hok Seng, military police commander in Kampot province’s Kampong Trach district, said he didn’t know details of the case, only that the suspect was being held at military police headquarters in the capital city.
