Cambodia’s government says it will not permit the screening of a hit Chinese action film based on the region’s cyber-scam industry, claiming that it would damage the country’s international reputation.
According to a report published yesterday by the local news site Cambodianess, Cambodia’s Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts has asked the Chinese Embassy not to screen the feature “No More Bets.”
“We asked the Chinese Embassy not to show ‘No More Bets’ movie,” the news site quoted ministry spokesperson Sum Map as saying. “The Embassy is still working on it. If there has been a leaked or a broadcast already, the ministry calls on the local authority to ban the movie in Cambodia.”
