France retains kidnapper, Cambodian Interpol negotiating arrest

A fomer deputy director of the general commission for the national police who escaped to France after he was accused of kid­napping last year would not be extradited back to the King­dom to face charges, the spokes­­man for the national police said yesterday.

Kirth Chantharith said Cambodia’s Interpol had received a letter last month from France stating that Nguon Seur would not be sent back to Cambodia.

“French Interpol could not ex­­tradite him to Cambodia be­­cause it is a violation of French laws,” Kirth Chantharith said.

“Cambodian Inter­pol is now seeking another sol­­ution or measure in order to arrest and extradite him for his trial in Cambodia.”
