Woman appointed to top police post

THE wife of Kampot provincial governor Khoy Khun Huor was promoted yesterday to the post of deputy national police commissioner, National police spokesman Kirt Chantharith said. He said the appointment of Un Sokunthea – the former director of the Department of Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection – would empower more women to take on leadership roles in government and the wider society. “She is suitable to accept this post because she has been working for a long time,” Kirt Chantharith said. He added that there are currently 11 deputy national police commissioners serving under national police chief Neth Savoeun.
