Kandal province, Cambodia News: It was announced on February 27, 2019, that the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) have begun a financial investigation into the assets of General Sreng Sokha, deputy police chief of Kandal province.
Image
The investigation was sparked by comments on social media following the announcement of the General's engagement to a young woman, showing posts of a lavish party featuring extravagant gifts, such as a $100,000 dowry, and also diamond jewelry and a Lexus car.
General Sreng Sokha can expect to have his income and expenditures closely scrutinized as part of the ACU's drive to suppress corruption and enforce the law.

That's the second time in recent weeks that a public official has come under scrutiny for being a bit too flashy online.
I'm confident that the ACU will get to the bottom of this and make him account for every dollar. :roll:

When you get on the shit list you really are going to have a hard time getting around your peers that want to stay on the good books. And they all know each others dodges so they cannot hide.
