Border Arrest: Thais catch suspected illegal logger

Border Arrest
A Cambodian national suspected of illegal logging has been arrested by Thai soldiers, a Cambodian official said Wednesday, confirming an incident that was reported by Thai media last week. “Leun La has really been arrested by Thai soldiers,” said Koy Kuong, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “We have already found a Thai lawyer to defend his case.” Thailand’s The Nation newspaper reported on March 19 that an armed clash between Thai soldiers and a group of around 30 Cambodians who had crossed the border had taken place the previous day. The Nation reported that the soldiers shot at them when the group was caught cutting down trees.
