Chapter Summary

In Cambodia, organised crime is a more recent phenomenon than in many other parts of the region. The oppressive system of government under the Khmer Rouge made it largely impossible for non-state organisations to gain any stronghold and most forms of resistance were violently suppressed by the regime. The production and trafficking of illicit drugs and human trafficking are the most prominent organised crime problems in Cambodia. Cambodia signed the Convention against Transnational Organised Crime on November 11, 2001, and ratified the Convention on December 12, 2005.
