Over the last two decades, the leading lights of the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) have been quietly amassing international property portfolios worth millions of dollars. The existence of this real estate network was – until recently – entirely undocumented and what has been reported so far has been described by one analyst as “the tip of the iceberg.”
Over the coming year, Radio Free Asia will publish a series of articles documenting the opulent homes Cambodia’s ruling elite maintain outside of the Kingdom.
These houses, it has been suggested, often serve as safe-deposit boxes and money laundering vehicles for ill-gotten gains, but also as potential safe havens should the current regime in Cambodia collapse.
