UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — U.S. embassy workers in Cambodia were allegedly fired after sharing pornography.
Reuters reported Friday, April 13, that 32 Cambodian and Cambodian-American U.S. embassy workers were fired.
Most of the employees were guards, and a few were clerical staff. None of the accused were diplomats.
Four anonymous sources told Reuters that the employees were dismissed over alleged sharing of porn in a non-official Facebook Messenger chat group. Some of the images featured individuals under the age of 18.
According to Reuters, the pornography was seen by the wife of an embassy worker who reported the incident to an embassy official. The official contacted the FBI.
As of this post, the Cambodian government and the U.S. State Department have not commented on the dismissals.
