[제목]Cambodians banned from marrying Koreans
S be banned from Sth / doing Sth : S에게 Sth 하는 것을 금지하다


The Cambodian government has imposed a provisional ban on international marriages with Koreans, citing fears of human trafficking, an official at the Korean embassy in Cambodia said Friday, according to Yonhap news agency.
impose : (새로운 법률, 세금 등을) 도입하다, 시행하다
provisional : 임시적인
cite : (이유, 예를) 들다
human trafficking : 인신매매
embassy : 대사관

"The Cambodian government has informed the Korean embassy in Cambodia early this month that it will suspend receiving applications for international marriage between Cambodians and Koreans," the official told Yonhap News Agency by phone. "The government again confirmed this in a formal document sent to the embassy on March 5."
suspend : (공식적으로) 중단하다
receive applications : 신청을 접수하다

The restriction pertains only to Korea because nearly 60 percent of international marriages in Cambodia involve Korean nationals, and most of them are arranged through brokers, the official said.
restiction : 제한
pertain only to : ~에만 해당된다 = to be connected with a particular subject, person, event or situation
involve : (누가 어떤 일에, 특히 무슨 범죄에) 연루되었음을 밝히다, 관련이 있음을 보여주다

Cambodia has banned marriage brokerage since 2008, allowing only "love matches." Despite the ban, the number of Cambodian women marrying Korean men more than doubled from 551 in 2008 to 1,372 last year.
marriage brokerage : 결혼 중개업 = a business that arranges marriage contracts
love match : 연애결혼
despite : ~임에도 불구하고

The latest measure came amid news reports in the Southeast Asian nation that a clampdown on marriage brokers in Vietnam has made neighboring Cambodia the new destination for Korean men seeking to "buy" wives. They denounced the practice of men choosing mainly poor women as wives, calling it "human trafficking."

The Financial Supervisory Service held a monthly disciplinary board meeting and decided to give KEB an "institutional warning," holding the bank accountable for lax regulation of overseas branches, the FSS officials said.

In January, KEB's two Japanese branches in Osaka and Tokyo received a three-month ban on deposits, lending and remittance operations by the local regulator Financial Service Agency, which concluded the Korean units issued bank balance statements in violation of rules governing illegal money laundering in 2007.
