No administrative measures, including curfew, stated in the sub-decree issued today are implemented in any provinces or capital, confirmed H.E. Kim Santepheap, Secretary of State and Spokesperson of the Ministry of Justice.
“All the administrative measures provided in the sub-decree have not yet been implemented within any geographical framework or any provinces and capital at the moment. That means no curfew imposed at the moment,” he said, explaining that an administrative measure will be carried out only if there is a decision of the capital-provincial board of governors for some part or some location in their territory or throughout their own territory only.
For the measures to lock down a capital or province and other administrative measures that extend beyond the territory of a capital or province or apply throughout the country, only the Royal Government can issue a decision, he underlined.
The spokesperson made the comments after there were some reports saying that the Royal Government imposed a curfew from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am.
The sub-decree on administrative measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other severe and dangerous contagious diseases was signed by Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen on Mar. 31. The sub-decree, composed of 7 chapters and 23 articles, details different administrative measures ranging from restriction or ban of travels and gatherings to lockdown of an area and curfew from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am.
