Hun Sen appeals to soccer fans not to sell property for betting.
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen appealed Thursday to Cambodians, especially soccer fans, not to sell their property for betting on World Cup matches.
''Please do not sell your cows, motorbikes, cars and houses for betting on soccer matches,'' Hun Sen told about 10,000 villagers in the country's northwestern province of Banteay Meanchey.
Last week, Non Nget, the leader of Buddhist monks in Phnom Penh, appealed to monks not to bet or become excited by soccer matches, warning that disciplinary action would be taken.
