The culture ministry’s code of conduct states that it aims to promote the “preservation, maintenance of arts, culture, tradition and the identity of the nation” Chamroeun Vantha, an adviser for the ministry and chief of the disciplinary council, said: “The council members decided to punish Denny Kwan by not having any activities in the entertainment industry for one year, such as filming, karaoke and singing performances on TV.
