Trucker takes cops to task for damaging fruit

A Koh Kong truck driver is demanding compensation after claiming police brutalised his bananas on Saturday.

The man was transporting a truckload of the fruit when police, acting on information that he may have been hauling illegal timber, pulled him over.

After police paid labourers to unload the fruit, it became clear there was nothing but bananas on board.

But the trucker claimed his once firm fruits were now significantly more flaccid as a result, and demanded police compensation.
