Claiming damage to officers’ “prestige and dignity,” the country’s national police union has asked the Information Ministry to step in and regulate a series of comedic videos depicting traffic-police imposters in an “inappropriate” way — including having long hair.
The Information Ministry said it would warn all broadcasters as requested, because free expression should not “affect others’ rights.”
The videos — produced by CTN, a television station operated by tycoon Kith Meng’s Royal Group — aim to educate viewers on the Traffic Law, said producer Sovann Rithy. Fines under the law were increased in March by as much as five times the previous rates.
