Flags of convenience

Dear Editor,

In reference to the Post article on September 1 titled "Cambodia flags of convenience

cause concern", I would like to make comments on these points:

1. Princess Bopha Devi and Mr Vandy Khek have not been shareholders in Cambodia Shipping

Corporation (CSC) since 1998.

2. Mr Rim In Ryong is a shareholder of CSC as a private citizen, not as a representative

of the North Korean Government. Your article's insinuations may have created him

problems with his administration. Your readers should be aware that the Phnom Penh

Post is responsible for Mr Ryong's welfare after the publication of the article.

3. The management of CSC is of highest standards. As you are aware, the management

and the Board of CSC is composed of established Singaporeans.

Under Singaporean law, punishment of trafficking of illegal drugs and related products

is the harshest in the world. Therefore, this supports the article's statement that

"...the source was unaware of any role played by CSC-flagged Korean ships in

the trade," (refering to illegal trafficking).

- Sakara Khek, Phnom Penh
