Authorities in Cambodia maintain that they are working hard to improve the country’s public image. It hopes the arrest of 61 people linked to illegal gambling and online phone scams will help.
Cambodia has been the recipient of a considerable amount of public condemnation, which has increased in recent times. Political and law enforcement officials assert that they are now diligently working to erase the negative perception.
For that to happen, authorities will have to make a large and concerted effort at eliminating the criminal element that controls certain parts of the country. A recent crackdown is another step in the right direction.
