Poached timber seized

SIEM Reap provincial officials have seized about five cubic metres of illegal hardwood from smugglers en route from Oddar Meanchey province, though no arrests were made. Yin Pra Seth, deputy chief of the anti-economic crime office at the Ministry of Interior, said the wood, thought to be from Oddar Meanchey, was seized from a truck in Siem Reap’s Puok district in cooperation with local forestry officials. The seizure of the wood came following tip-offs from locals, who said they saw trucks lugging illegal timber through the district. The drivers of the truck escaped and are currently on the run.
