Crime in Cambodia – A Sad Khmer New Year Story

April 13, 2012 · 10 comments

Browsing my twitter stream yesterday afternoon I came across a series of tweets from fellow expat Cambodian blogger LTO_cambodia that caught my attention.

So sad to hear that a hard working and honest Cambodian woman was targeted by youths praying on people returning to their families for the Khmer New Year celebrations. Unfortunately, this will be only one of many similar situations that will happen this time of year in Cambodia.

The story had a moderately happy ending when local staff and even a cyclo driver dipped into their own pockets to help out.
