Government seeks new crop of RCAF officers

The Cambodian Government has allowed the Ministry of National Defence to recruit new army officers, according to a Royal sub-decree issued on March 27 and obtained by the Post yesterday.

The sub-decree permits the ministry to recruit 500 officers for the Second Division of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.

Son Chhay, a Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker in Phnom Penh, said the government should be careful in implementing policies for military recruitment, citing instances where the RCAF has paid soldiers who have not been in active services.

Son Chhay noted that when conflict arose between Cambodia and Thailand, the government always hastened to recruit more soldiers.
