 National Assembly President Heng Samrin has forwarded a request to
the Ministry of Interior calling for a report on the unusual release of
a jailed former provincial police chief in Ratanakkiri province last
month.
The former chief of that province, Yoeung Baloung, who was supposed
to be serving an 13-year sentence on charges related to corruption and
illegal logging, was let out by the provincial prison chief and was
then involved in a traffic incident that injured three people.
In a letter to the Ministry of Interior dated Tuesday, Heng Samrin
requested that the ministry report to the National Assembly the
reason’s behind Yoeung Baloung’s release.
Kuy Bunsorn, the newly appointed director of prisons at the
ministry, said Wednesday an investigation was conducted and a report
has been written, but completion is awaiting approval by Minister of
Interior Sar Kheng.
Ratanakkiri prison director Ngin Nhel has said he authorized the
release for medical reasons. Yoeung Baloung is now back in the prison,
officials say.
