DFW acts

Officials from the Department of Forestry and Wildlife raided an illegal logging

operation in the Pheapimex concession in Kampong Thom between August 5-8. The operation,

which was conducted with police and military support, resulted in officials burning

five logging trucks, 18 cubic meters of timber and three saw-mills. The action follows

a report earlier this month by NGO Global Witness that documented evidence of illegal

logging in Kratie, Kampong Thom and Mondolkiri.
