Illegal wood raid fails

MORE than five tonnes of luxury wood was confiscated from illegal wood shops by authorities during a raid yesterday in Banlung district in Ratanakkiri province, according to Neang Khai, the deputy provincial military chief. A mix of authorities including police forces, military police, court officials, forestry department officials and customs officials orchestrated the raid, Neang Khai said, adding that no arrests were made because those responsible had been tipped off about the raid. He said the shop owners’ identities were known to policy, and that they would be arrested soon.
