A replacement for sacked Meanchey district police chief Hy Narin has been appointed more than two months after he was dismissed over embezzlement allegations.
Teng Sino, former Chbar Ampov district deputy police chief, assumed the post yesterday, Meachey district governor Pich Keomony said.
Ten other police officers changed jobs yesterday in a reshuffle of the capital’s forces.
Born Ath, formerly the director of Phnom Penh’s anti-drug police, was appointed the new deputy commissioner for intervention. Iv Phearith, Ath’s former deputy, was promoted to director of the Anti-Drugs Unit.
Hy Narin, the former Meachey district police chief, was summonsed for questioning on September 30 after an Anti-Corruption Unit investigation uncovered evidence he had, among other allegations, embezzled about $678,000 during his eight years as police chief.
