Cambodia to arrest people who photoshopped the King having gay sex

The Cambodian police have vowed to arrest the creators of a picture that shows the country’s King having gay sex.

The photoshopped picture, which surfaced on the social media last week, depicts the country’s monarch, King Norodom Sihamoni, engaged in sexual acts with two men.

It is legal to have gay sex in Cambodia, but homosexuality continues to be taboo, and insulting the monarch is considered greatly offensive.

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.”

King Sihamoni took the throne in 2004 after his father abdicated. He is unmarried and has no children.

    Oh, please. The people who dared to do this probably safely live outside of Cambodia! So I wonder who they’re scapegoating.

    I can understand the anger shaa.???

    Since there’s no picture, I’d just imagine it. The King is lying face up on his royal bed, his Royal dick buried deep in the ass of one of the guys who is straddled across him, the other guy is straddled across the King’s face, his Royal tongue working it’s magic in the glory hole of the guy.

    Hmm. Graphic.

      As in! Nigerians should come and see this King who is unmarried and has no children as those two things have become the hallmark of whether one is suitable for public and in some instances private posts in this country.
