A young rapper and a TikTok broadcaster have been arrested over videos that Cambodian authorities deemed to have the potential to cause chaos in society.
Nhel Thearyna, a TikTok user with more than 100,000 followers, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon over a video in which he claims Angkor Wat doesn’t belong to Cambodia, Tbong Khmum provincial police chief Pen Rath said.
“Why does everyone love posting about Angkor Wat temple?” Thearyna asks in the video, which has since been deleted. “Everyone loves posting Angkor Wat, as if Angkor Wat belongs to Cambodians. In fact it does not belong to Cambodians, so don’t post it. If you can stop, please stop.”
