Police to investigate Taiwanese drug raid

Ministry of Interior Sar Kheng and National Police Com­mis­sioner General Neth Savoeun had ordered a special investigation into Taiwanese authorities’ seizure last month of 80 kilograms of heroin from a fishing boat that had entered Taiwanese waters from Cambodia, National Police spokesman Kirt Chantharith said yesterday.

Cambodian authorities were seemingly left out of the loop on the raid, Chantharith said.

“We are investigating the matter . . . and we have asked for co-operation from Taiwanese authorities.“
