Angelina Jolie becomes a Cambodian Citizen

08/14/2005 at 08:15 AM ET

In Phnom Penh, King Norodom Sihamoni has signed a special decree giving actress Angelina Jolie Cambodian citizenship in return for her environmental work in the country. "The King signed the legal paper and that means she now has Cambodian citizenship," Toun Siphan, director of the government’s international relation department, told Reuters.  The actress, who  adopted Maddox, 4, from Cambodia, has agreed to spend $5 million dollars over the next 15 years to set up a wildlife sanctuary in a former Khmer Rouge stronghold in the northwestern province of Battambang.
