BGU deputy chief leads Thai training ceremony delegation

Lieutenant General Nob Roth Nimol, the deputy commander of the Prime Minister’s Bodyguard Unit (BGU) led a delegation to the closing ceremony of a training course for BGU officers on Tuesday.

It was held at the Security Centre and General Command of the Royal Thai Armed Forces in Thailand.

General Hing Bun Heang, the deputy commander of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) and commander of the BGU who said this on Wednesday, added that 50 officers attended the training course, which was aimed at safeguarding high-ranking officials.

“This is based on an agreement between the Thai Kingdom and the BGU. The agreement ends at the end of this year when the training will end. The 50 officers from the BGU have acquired the skills to safeguard high-ranking officials.

“They learned the skills over one and a half months. The General Command of the Royal Thai Armed Forces has so far helped us with such training,” Bun Heang said.

He said that apart from safeguarding high-ranking officials, the BGU officers had also been trained to rescue victims during disasters and various other conditions,” he said.

Roth Nimol said at the closing ceremony that currently the political and economic situations in the Asean region were evolving and growing at a new level. Over the past decade, the political, economic, cultural, tourist and diplomatic areas of each country had also evolved.

He said the RCAF and the BGU were proud that its officers had achieved good results in their studies.

“This is testament to the attention given to our officers by the senior leadership of the Royal Thai Armed Forces and the efforts of the trainers and military professors,” Roth Nimol said.

Bun Heang continued that the BGU had also sent its officers for training in Indonesia, Vietnam and China. The BGU, he said, also welcomed other countries that wished to help with such training.
