Logger Death: Thais silent on border shooting

Logger Death
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is still waiting for an official reply from their Thai counterparts regarding a Cambodian man who was allegedly shot and killed by Thai border guards on October 19. Cambodia sent a diplomatic note to the Thai embassy on October 22, requesting an investigation into the death of 25-year-old Sim Bun Chhim. According to Cambodian officials, Thai forces opened fire on a group of Cambodian villagers while they were allegedly felling trees illegally in Oddar Meanchey province. “We are asking them to investigate the case and punish the perpetrators and prevent such acts against villagers in future,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong.
