Hun Sen disregards report

Prime Minister Hun Sen has disregarded the findings of a report on beer smuggling,

local media reported. The report conducted by the Economic Institute of Cambodia,

claimed the Kingdom lost $22 million in tax revenues over beer smuggling in 2006,

with smuggled beer accounting for 29 percent of the country's total beer market -

outstripping legal imports at six percent. It blamed the rise in contraband beer

on weak governance and law enforcement. Hun Sen told local media he could not accept

the findings. "The study is a waste of money," he said. "Their report

aims at blaming the government."
