With reference to a story that was recently reported in the Phnom Penh Post concerning a government official gambling away about US$600,000.
Your readers would feel truly privileged if an important media vehicle such as The Phnom Penh Post would point out that it is common knowledge that only holders of foreign passports are allowed to gamble in Cambodia.
Surely the alleged miscreant should also have stood trial for illegally gambling. The casino in question would also have been aware of the illegal gambler and were in breach of their contact with the authorities.
I know that it’s difficult to be too bold in this wonderful country. It would still be nice to see a more campaigning stance from a great newspaper.
