A TIMBER trader in Preah Sihanouk province has filed a complaint against a forestry official after luxury timber and two cars were confiscated from him in a raid last month. Y Meng Leang, deputy administrative forestry chief of Preah Sihanouk’s Stung Hav district, said on Sunday that he had just received a subpoena from the provincial court. “It is retaliation. I cooperated [with forestry authorities] to take action against illegal timber but did not lead this raid,” he said. Y Meng Leang said he and other officials worked together to confiscate the timber in a raid in Prey Nop district on November 17. The plaintiff could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
