About

Charles Rollet

I am a journalist who worked as a reporter for the Phnom Penh Post from 2014 to 2016. I was an intern at the Wall Street Journal's Hong Kong bureau in the summer of 2017.

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 subediting.

I am a French citizen. Please check out my resume for further details.
