Shops raided for wood in Stung Treng province

OVER 60 cubic metres of rare hardwoods have been seized during raids on wood shops in Stung Treng province, officials said. Kim Huoth, the deputy provincial police chief, said a combined force of local police, military police and forestry officials from the Forestry Administration led the raids, which took place in Stung Treng district on Friday and Saturday. Wood cutting machines, saws and other equipment were also confiscated in the raids, he said. Chroeung Khmao, a prosecutor at Stung Treng provincial court, said the owners of the confiscated timber were fined, but that the court had opted not to charge them. “They also promised that they won’t commit this offence again in the future,” he said.
