Kratie court release five illegal logging suspects

Five out of 11 people who were arrested this week as part of an illegal logging crackdown were released yesterday after appearing in Kratie provincial court. National Military Police spokesman Kheng Tito said the five former suspects were released due to insufficient evidence. “After the testimony, the prosecutor decided to release the five people due to a lack of evidence and will continue to take testimony from the other six people,” he said.
