A lawyer for disgraced anti-drug czar Moek Dara has been summonsed to the Anti-Corruption Unit for the second time for questioning over the loss of documents he said contain possible exculpatory evidence.
ACU President Om Yentieng confirmed he had re-summonsed Ray Bunthoeun, but declined to elaborate.
Last month, ACU officials questioned Bunthoeun and Ith Samphors, vice deputy president of the Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court, Bunthoeun said.
“I am now very worried about my own safety and security. I think that this is to pressure me,” he said. The five documents allegedly demonstrate that a witness who testified against Dara falsified testimony.
Dara and an associate were sentenced to life in prison last year on a slew of charges stemming from a bribery and drug-trafficking ring.
