Two brothers were charged with fishing with illegal electrical devices by Kampong Chhnang Provincial Court yesterday morning.

Yun Chea, 24, and Yun Kon, 23, had been caught red-handed fishing with the banned battery-powered fishing equipment at Prek Koh Krobey in Boribor district, according to local Fishery Administration official Soam Phirun.

“We arrested them while they were committing the crime,” Phirun said, adding that the men, who live in Kampong Thom province’s Kampong Svay district, had undergone two days of interrogation.

Following the pair’s arrest, police seized 10 kilos of fish, two batteries, an electrical current inverter, a fish-collecting net and a motorboat and boat engine.
