New governor in Kratie

Prime Minister Hun Sen appointed former Kratie deputy governor Sar Chamrong, one of his personal advisers, as the new governor of the province in a ceremony there on Friday, the government’s official news agency said over the weekend.

The Post reported earlier this month that Kratie provincial governor Kham Phem was killed in a traffic accident when the car he was riding in flipped over as he was travelling back to his home from Phnom Penh.

Kham Phem had served as Kratie governor since 2004.
