The spate of motorbike robberies previously reported on this site from articles from the Phnom Penh Post continues, if we are to believe today’s (
'4 Attempted Motorbike Robberies leave 2 dead'
One of the cases:
'A man was shot dead Tuesday afternoon in Chamkar Mon district by robbers who had to flee empty-handed after failing to start the victim’s motorbike.'
What a waste! The same Cambodia Daily reports on an annual crime report presented by
'The bulk of the reduction was in robberies, which went down 51%...! Murder (excluding killings [can someone explain the difference?] however rose… . Demonstrations and strikes … [is this counted as serious crimes?] went down 61 percent ....'
Understandably there is some skepticism. But when presenting traffic accident statistics there is little skepticism in general. Can somebody explain why not?
