Trigger-happy police official dismissed

National Police Chief Neth Savoeun yesterday dismissed the head of the antiterrorism department in Banteay Meanchey province after he allegedly discharged his weapon in a restaurant and attacked the owner of the establishment last Thursday. Deputy Provincial Police Chief Chan Kosal said Neth Savoeun dismissed Lieutenant Colonel Sok Sokun at a ceremony appointing a provincial police chief to replace former chief Hun Hean, who was arrested last week on corruption charges. “Neth Savoeun reminded all police officials to serve people and to make people confident about police forces,” said Chan Kosal. Sok Sokun is believed to have fled to Thailand.
