Cambodia News, (Takeo province): Angry residents accuse Angkor Borey District Governor, Ros Bunthoeun Ry, of selling off Phnom Borey, a historical mountain. However, the mountain is not for sale.

According to the local people, the governor of Angkor Borey district likes to sing karaoke almost every day, and while he sings, hundreds of trucks are taking away stone that is quarried at Phnom Borey. The governor is accused of accepting money to sell the revered mountain to stone traders, who are mining the mountain and removing it piece by piece.

According to officials at the Takeo Provincial Department of Mines and Energy, stone mining in Phnom Borey, Angkor Bo district, has been banned several times in the past. It is not known why the traders continue to mine the stone, but this could not go on without a green light from the governor. Ang Borei district governor Ros Bunthoeun Ry could not be reached for comment.
