Top police officials met Thursday at Phnom Penh Municipal Court to discuss a new strategy for combating youth-related crime following a directive from Prime Minister Hun Sen in June to crack down on gangsters. "During a three-hour discussion, we outlined the goals of cracking down on crime in a smooth way, a legal way and an efficient way, in order to guarantee security, safety and civil peace in Phnom Penh," said Chev Keng, director of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

The strategy is to be followed by local and national police across the Kingdom, Chev Keng said, in order to prevent youths from terrorising local communities and to educate them.
