ACU questions Moek Dara lawyer, again

Anti-graft officials yesterday questioned Moek Dara’s lawyer over the disappearance of documents pertaining to the former anti-drug czar’s landmark case.

Ray Buntheon said that from 8:30am to 6:30pm, the Anti-Corruption Unit had grilled him “asking me about my relationship with the Banteay Meanchey Court judges and prosecutors, and issues related to the case”.

According to Buntheon, the documents present potentially exculpatory evidence for Dara, who was last year sentenced to life in prison on drug trafficking and bribery charges and whose appeal verdict is pending.

ACU head Om Yentieng could not be reached for comment.
