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.

Yearlong Political Deadlock Endsi
X
22 July 2014
Cambodia’s political deadlock has ended. For nearly a year, the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party has refused to join the government, calling for electoral reforms in a system it says was deeply flawed. Following nearly five hours of meetings between top opposition officials and Prime Minister Hun Sen, that deadlock has ended. The two sides finally reached agreement on a formula for selecting the National Election Committee, which the Rescue Party has said was biased toward the ruling Cambodian People’s Party. Hun Sen and Rescue Party President Sam Rainsy emerged from talks Tuesday smiling and shaking hands. “Victory,” Hun Sen told reporters after the meeting. “You can all applaud.” (Heng Reaksmey, Phnom Penh)
