Trapaing Krasang commune’s police chief, Long Saran, said Im Kimhong, who represents the opposition Sam Rainsy Party, was arrested after his wife told police that he was in possession of a machine gun. “He was hiding an illegal weapon. His weapon was old, with no bullets,” he said. However, he said the gun was still in a condition to be fired.
