Raid fails to reveal any illegal wildlife in home

A 21-year-old man was arrested yesterday for obstructing justice after he refused wildlife officials entry into his home to investigate claims he was illegally keeping wild animals.

Last month, eight officials from Wild Aid got a court order to search Phal Teng Te’s house in Koh Kong’s Sre Ambel district, but he refused to let them in, according to investigating judge Kham Sophary.

Te was summonsed to court yesterday, where he was questioned and arrested. “At last, the group of Wild Aid and the court did not find any illegal wild animals in his house. But some forestry fruits were seized,” Kong Chet, a Licadho provincial coordinator, said.
