Shooting ranges in Preah Sihanouk to be closed to enhance security

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet on Wednesday (Jan 31) ordered the permanent closure of all private shooting ranges in the coastal province of Preah Sihanouk.

Speaking at the launching event of a special programme to boost investment in the province, Hun Manet said the move was to enhance security, safety and public order for local people, tourists and investors in the province.

“I think that tourists to Preah Sihanouk province do not want to learn how to shoot a gun, but they want to see the beauty of our islands, so shut down all those private shooting ranges and don’t allow them to be reopened,” he said.
