Australian Ambassador Malcolm Leader joined Deputy Prime Minister and Co-Minister

for Interior Sar Kheng in opening a newly refurbished Kampong Speu Police Station

and Prison on Feb 18, according to an Australian Embassy press release.

The refurbishment was part of AusAID's Cambodia Criminal Justice Assistance Project

designed to strengthen the Kingdom's criminal justice system. More than US$8 million

is being spent on working with police, prisons and courts at both the national level

as well as in five provinces.

The embassy says "evidence of the sucess of the project can be seen in the improved

health and well being of prisoners through better nutrition, hygiene and medical

supervision."
