Military cops slated to see posts change

Several high-ranking provincial military officials – including Prey Veng’s military police commander, some of whose men are under investigation for police brutality – are slated for reassignment to national positions, according to a document obtained yesterday.

Prey Veng commander Sok Krin, whose officers have been under scrutiny since the March 19 incident where police reportedly shot at, arrested and beat two men transporting rice along National Road 11, is scheduled to be made the National Military Police’s deputy chief of staff.

Krin denied allegations of his involvement in the men’s torture, saying that a current investigation involving the case will “find the truth”.

“Being removed from my position is fine for me, but . . . I believe the truth will be the truth. I am not going to go against it,’’ he said.

The investigation has been concluded, but findings won’t be publicised for some weeks, lead investigator and national military police deuty commander Sin Sophany said.

According to a senior military police officer, who declined to be named, the staff reshuffle has yet to be finalised.
