via VOA Cambodia, 21 Jan 2019 and Khmer Times: Cambodia has lodged a complaint over the sales of toilet products decorated with the imagery of Angkor on them – this placement is considered extremely disrespectful.
The Cambodian government has written a letter of complaint to online retailer Amazon over the platform’s hosting of bathroom products emblazoned with the image of Angkor Wat and other “national symbols”.
Thai Noraksatya, culture ministry spokesman, said the ministry had sent the letter to Amazon, calling for an immediate halt to the sales of the products on its website.
“We are yet to see a written response [from Amazon]. However, according to our research online, we can see that Amazon already took down those pictures and made adjustments.”
