Interpol joins hunt for acid attacker

Interpol have joined the hunt for Chea Ratha, the former deputy chief of staff of the National Military Police who is wanted in connection with a May 6 acid attack that left a Phnom Penh woman seriously disfigured. Keo Vanthan, first deputy director of Interpol in Cambodia, said the international police agency has issued a “red notice” for her arrest, which allows foreign countries who have an extradition agreement with Cambodia to arrest her and send her back to Phnom Penh. “We have sent a request to Interpol headquarters in Lyon to issue a red notice for Chea Ratha,” Vanthan told the Post by phone on May 29, adding that Ratha is believed to be somewhere in Thailand. Kampuchea Thmey reported that the government has rescinded Ratha’s passport and removed her from all official positions pending her arrest.
