Khmer in Denver from Denver :

This is how this gov’t operates in all levels. It [...] where they eat. The major problem in Cambodia’s bureaucrat is there is no accountability. Everyone is taken bribes of each level and no one held accountable. Hen Sun: jon jeng tiev!!!!!

Bravo for the soldiers for being brave to step up and speaking out! If their own party can't help them, time to turn to other sources.

They use AK-47 rifle to kill un-armed protesters. Can they do that to corrupt leaders like Hun Sen, these corrupt officials?

If you're looking into corruption, please look also at the TAX Department in Phnom Penh. This is the mother load of all corruption. When I sold my shop house, I had to pay thousands of dollars to these thieves.

Before my papers were processed, I was introduced to a guy in a small room he shared with his boss. This is where the willing dealing behind the scene was done. They do give you receipts on 60% what you pay, the 40% disappears into thin air. I ended up paid about $15,000 in total. You can do the math, multiply this by hundreds or thousands and you can see why these people working in there driving nice cars. The guy sharing room with his boss, has 3 villas and was able to send his daughter to school overseas on his $500/month salary. This is the behive of corruption because of big money involved. When I was there in the office waiting to be served, this man came in talking about leasing or buying an island. This is BIG BIG money involved, millions and millions!!

No surprise! These are not the only commanders. All the other commanders are also corrupt. Whether civilian leaderships or military commanders, people with power and position committed the most crime.

Thanasith from Phnom Penh :

Most of military high ranking officers are corrupt officers like illegal logging,land grabbing,drug dealers and mineral companies and no anyone could punish them so that they supported strongly Mr. Hun Sen whose families members are the same.
