Angkor Chum district, Siem Reap province – Late last week, Um Oeung received a call from his friend Oeuth Ang. It had been about 10 days since Mr. Ang up and left their sleepy village in Siem Reap province.
“I asked him, ‘What are you doing now?’” Mr. Oeung said on Tuesday, sitting outside his friend’s house after being interviewed by police.
“He said, ‘I am a soldier in Phnom Penh.’”
Mr. Ang sounded upbeat, he said, so he started joking with him, asking if he could find him a similar job in the capital.
“I told him: ‘You have a job and a salary; help me get one too!’”
Then the line went dead. He tried to call his friend back, but it would not go through.
