PHNOM PENH —
Cambodian authorities have yet to take legal action against a woman accused of toppling an ancient statue inside the temple complex of Angkor Wat.
Police say Willemijn Vermaat, 40, who currently lives in New Zealand but is a Dutch citizen, sneaked into the Bayon Temple of the complex one night and knocked over a statue.
She was briefly detained the following morning, before the statue was found knocked over, and she appears to have left the country.
A government spokesman said legal action is possible, but it is also a complicated matter now of international law and diplomacy.
