Four More Police Officers Are Summoned for Questioning

Four police officers among Phnom Penh city commissioner's staff are being summoned for clarification at the Ministry of Interior Tuesday afternoon, after 10 police officials are being held in prison last month, say police authorities.

According to news source, the four police officers are: Mr. Heng Vattana, deputy inspector Tuol Kork district, Mr. Prach Nhaat, technological and forensic office of Phnom Penh Municipal police headquarter chief , Mr. Sun Sopheak, police official, technological and forensic unit of Phnom Penh Municipal police headquarter chief, and Mr. Duong Sitha, director of district Tik La-ok headquarter, Tuol Kork.

In February, ten former Phnom Penh police officers in charges of less criminal offenses were involved with a number of criminal charges and are currently being held.

Moreover, the four police officers are not known whether or not they are involved with the ten police officials.

General Sok Phal Ministry of Interior's police deputy commissioner says there were murder charges filed against these officers, so the National Police Commissioner wants these four officers to be investigated by disciplinary police unit.
