PHNOM PENH: Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, Vath Chamroeun, said that those who forge the seal of the SEA Games Commission or copy the ticket to the closing ceremony of the SEA Games will be punished by law and could face up to five years in prison.
Chamroeun attended the press conference to announce Thailand as the host of the 33rd SEA Games on May 16, 2023, where he addressed fraudsters copying the seal and administrative letterhead of the SEA Games Commission as well as closing ceremony tickets themselves.
"Fake people will be punished according to the law and will be sentenced to up to five years for forging and falsifying administrative documents," he said.
He also said that people who do not have a ticket to watch the closing ceremony can watch from home or at big screens in designated public viewing areas. He called on people to be careful of unofficial ticket sources who interrupt the smooth running of the 32nd SEA Games in Cambodia.
The 32nd SEA Games will officially close on May 17, 2023 in a ceremony at the Moradok Techo National Stadium presided over by Prime Minster of Cambodia, Hun Sen and First Lady Bun Rany, mirroring the successful opening of the Games on May 5.
