An official at the Siem Reap provincial tax office was arrested by the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) on Wednesday for alleged graft, though ACU officials remained tight-lipped yesterday.
Provincial prosecutor Ty Soveinthal said the accused official would be sent to court today but declined to reveal more. Chhay Savuth, deputy head of the ACU, said yesterday that he could not reveal any details.
“We cannot break our secrecy before the ACU head releases the result. If we [reveal] all the secrets, it will cause the suspect to eliminate all the evidence and then they would be free,” he said.
