The government has no business imposing its will on citizens' freedom of movement. This would definitely be an infringement of civil rights. My question to the governor is where, exactly, is Cambodia headed right now?
Firstly, not too long ago, a senior official voiced their concern about the scantily clad Cambodian women pictured in a certain magazine. Almost immediately, all copies were removed from the shops and the magazine office was shut down.
Secondly, the recent banning of the Miss Landmine pageant also has me scratching my head. Now, a curfew on underage girls? Whatever's next?
Democracy in Cambodia is slowly and surely buckling under pressure from the elite few and their "Yes, Sir!" cronies. This trend threatens to roll Cambodia back to its darkest day in recent history.
