    I salute the Cambodian government for their consistent bravery in bringing to justice these cruel human beings ! I wish that at the same time the present government strikes hard at the corruption prevalent in the Immigration and Customs departments at airports. Very daring requests for bribes are practised there as there are probably no monitoring CCTVs or that no one cares to look at them soliciting bribes! As the first line of welcome to Cambodia, the best of Cambodian culture in politieness, efficiency in administration should be foremost in practice to lure more and more tourists and businessmen! Notwithstanding that extreme caution should also be taken to prevent the criminals and smugglers from getting through this first line of welcome !!
