About

Charles Rollet

I am a multimedia journalist who worked as a national and business reporter for the Phnom Penh Post from 2014 to 2016.

My passion is bringing to light underreported stories - from Thai rocket gambling to fugitive oligarchs - but I also have extensive experience in breaking news and copy editing.

I am a French citizen and enjoy eating, reading, and bad TV in my spare time.
