Cambodia opposes Sale of Antique Carts

Issued: 20 November 2002

Cambodian cultural officials are becoming increasingly irritated by the illegal sale of old ox-carts and farming implements to Thailand, where they are used as decorations.

A ministry of fine arts and culture official says cart parts are being shipped to Thai hotels, homes and restaurants.

The ox-carts, many up to 300 years old, qualify as Cambodian antiques and are subjected to laws protecting the country's cultural heritage.

However the carts, along with rusting plows and farming implements, are being sold by impoverished farmers who view them as rubbish.
