Cambodia

Chinese fighters

As many countries continue to warn Chinese National to be peaceful and respectful to their host, some Chinese nationals have decided to throw decorum into thin air as they exchanged furnitures of a restaurant in Cambodia and engage in public brawl, until they were carted away by local police officers.

                     

The fight was reported to have started at the Eu Ouy restaurant, at 3 am on March 12, 2019 in in Sangkat Tonle Basac, Khan Chamkarmorn, Phnom Penh. According to the report from eyewitnesses, three nationals, including a woman, the group had started an argument with another Chinese group, that would later lead to a fight, damaging the furniture in the restaurant.

                    

When the first group of Cambodians left the scene, the two Chinese men remaining from the previous fight, then pick another fight with some Cambodian men at the same restaurant.

                    

Police were later invited to the scene, and they took all the wrestlers away for questionings.

A Nigerian man, Donald Millo has revealed the assault he got from the Cambodian immigration officers while trying to enter the country earlier this month. Donald shared a video of himself narrating his experience on his Facebook page, and our correspondent decided to talk to him for details.

According to Donald, he had travelled to Cambodia from Vietnam for few days to explore the country and get back to Vietnam to work. Donald, a software Engineer in Vietnam sounded bitter while he narrated the horrible experience he got from the Cambodian immigration officer at the border.

                          

He said he had picked up his visa in Vietnam, and as he arrived the country, he showed the visa and other relevant documents to the officers, they also asked for his return ticket to Vietnam, and he showed them. After some time, the officers said he won't be allowed into the country, and when he asked if there was a problem, the officers won't provide a reason, but just don't want him to enter into Cambodia.

As he tried questioning this action, the young man was assaulted by the officers who had surrounded him and with one voice, "we don't want you, we don't want Nigerians, you monkey". 

As other passengers try to talk to the immigration about this act, they were told to keep moving, and this is an official problem. 

Donald was not allowed to enter Cambodia and was sent on the next flight to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, even after buying a ticket to Noi Bai Airport, Hanoi.
