WASHINGTON - A top Cambodian police official is in the US this week to attend a conference on Asian gangs.

Sok Phal, deputy chief of national police, is in California to attend a series of meetings sponsored by the Asian Gang Investigators Association, to discuss terrorism and transnational crime.

The conference, which brings together police officials from numerous countries and 35 US states, ends Friday.

Cambodia has had three major sweeps of Chinese and Taiwanese gangs in Cambodia in recent years, Sok Phal told VOA Khmer by phone, and is learning to cooperate internationally.

This will help fight drug and human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children, he said. “For these we mutually cooperate and extradite [suspects] to origin countries.”

Discussions among different agencies are meant to close loopholes in laws that help criminals get away, he said.

Such meetings are good for general discussions, he said, but actual cases are discussed one by one, bilaterally, between nations, he said. “Cambodia is highly determined and will greatly collaborate with all countries in the world to fight crime,” he said, adding that Cambodia is a member of Interpol and other international agencies.

“We will do whatever we can not to let criminals be freed or escape the law,” Sok Phal said.

Cambodia is thought to produce the best wild honey in Southeast Asia, mainly due to its climate and topography. Most of it is harvested informally and sold cheaply at local village markets. Now, one company is helping some of the country's poorest people by employing them to hunt for honey, then selling it commercially. (AP, Koh Kong)
