Hun Sen got already a warning and a world wide weapon trade ban on him. So if he try he will be hit by sanctions. So the same for North Korea and Myanmar on Sanctions and everybody who break it.

I seriously think they don't care as they still have support locally and besides they still have their lobster and steak and champagne as are filthy rich from plundering their country's coffers. Only real ones who suffer are the people.
