police arrest major general over assets

Major General Sok Rathorn, an official with the Ministry of National Defence, was arrested and charged in the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday for allegedly failing to declare his assets to the Anti-Corruption Unit, municipal military police official Colonel Pou Davy said.

Davy said Rathorn was arrested at about 10:30am and “has been sent to Prey Sar Prison to await his coming trial”.

Civil servants have to declare their assets to the ACU every two years, but arrests for failing to do so are rare. The ACU could not be reached for comment.
