The police of Cambodia swore that people who created the picture of the King Norodom Sihamoni committing a homosexual act with 2 men would be arrested. Homosexuality itself is not a crime in Cambodia, but it is unwelcomed and judged in the country’s culture. So the Monarch having gay sex is a serious scandal which can destroy prestige of the whole country and nobody wants it.According to Cambodia Daily, police are planning to make three arrests over the images, which spread on Facebook across Cambodia and Thailand. Khieu Sopheak of the Cambodian Ministry of Interior confirmed three suspects will be arrested. The spokesperson said: “We have got orders to arrest them. If we don’t take action against them, more people might follow their act. We have identified some suspects, two living in the country and one living outside; they worked in a group. Insulting the king is a crime… the king represents the whole nation and they are insulting the king, which is like they are insulting the whole nation.” It is unclear what actual law has been broken by creating the image, as it is not a specific crime in Cambodia to insult the monarch.
