Way to go, Cambodia!
PHNOM PENH (Reuters) – Cambodia’s parliament passed a law Friday which could send adulterers to jail for up to a year.
“This law is also aimed at reducing corruption, because when government officials have more women, they seek more financial sources to support their girls,” National Assembly Chairman Heng Samrin said.Sam Rainsy, chief of his eponymous opposition party, was not impressed.
Many married Cambodian men keep mistresses if they can afford them and the government argued that making adultery a criminal offence would help shore up the family.
