The translation shows how wonderful the Khmer language can be, and how some journalists know how to write an entertaining piece of news. The City Cat restaurant is owned by a big wheel in government and is the preferred venue of upper echelon members of government meeting for all kinds of business deals. The Cafe is separate from that but then it’s only a short walk for those officials exhausted from hard negotiations to find relaxation nearby.
So if the above is true then why did the police raid it?
Powerful and connected men also have powerful and connected wives.
Hat off to Peter Hogan. That’s a great comment and it is true.
