ACU Probes High-ranking Corruption Case, Warn Official

The director of the Anti-Terrorism Police Department has been warned by the Anti-Corruption Unit following the lodging of a corruption complaint against him, according to officials at the ACU. Y Sok Khy has allegedly been illegally collecting so-called ‘voluntary funds’ from his subordinates on a monthly basis for nearly two years...

He added that Mr. Khy acquiesced in light of the complaint, and said that some lower officials in his unit were in support of the policy while others disagreed with it.

The amounts collected per month, per position were as follows: Deputy Directors paid $25, Office chiefs paid $20, Deputy Office Chiefs paid $12.50, Unit Chiefs paid $10, Deputy Unit Chiefs paid $7.50 and officials paid $1.25.

Mr. Khy declined to comment further, deferring to the head of the Interior Ministry.
“I have responded to the accusations already, I will follow any decision made by the Head of Interior Ministry,” he said.

As a result of the investigation, the Interior Minister has warned Mr. Khy and insisted he promise not to commit such an act again.

Haha, voluntary contributions. What a cheeky bastard. Sadly lot's of ministries are like this. Does Cambodia really need an anti-terrorism department?

"Does Cambodia really need an anti-terrorism department?"

But of course, who else will protect The Kingdom of Wonder from anarchic peaceful demonstrators
that give this country a bad name.

KNLF ‘terrorists’ in court for ‘treason’
Wed, 8 July 2015

Ten members of the blacklisted Khmer National Liberation Front were tried yesterday at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on treason charges brought on by allegations they had distributed anti-Vietnamese propaganda ahead of a demonstration last year.

Chea Sok Heang, presiding judge at the court, said the 10 alleged KNLF members were charged as accomplices to acts of treason under Article 453 of the Criminal Code, adding that after their arrests police recovered hundreds of KNLF statements, leaflets and other related materials from them, which were allegedly handed out before a protest at the Vietnamese Embassy in October 2014.

Lieutenant General Chhay Sinnarith, deputy director of the National Commissariat of the National Police, called the group an “armed terrorist organisation intent on overthrowing the Cambodian and Vietnamese governments”...
