Jailed loggers return

Four alleged illegal loggers were repatriated to Cambodia from Thailand on Monday after serving time in prison there.

The quartet had allegedly crossed the border to unlawfully log luxury-grade wood in 2012 when they were thrown in jail, according to rights group Adhoc.

They were returned to Cambodia via the border crossing in Oddar Meanchey province’s Anlong Veng district, said Touch Ra, director of the Cambodian-Thai border relations office at Choam Sa-Ngam checkpoint.
