A draft law on curtailing the financing of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) has been reviewed by local officials and is on course to reach the National Assembly, according to the Ministry of Interior.
Speaking to The Post on Thursday, Ministry of Interior secretary of state Ngy Chanphal said a working group on Tuesday revised the draft law on financing the proliferation of WMDs. As a member of the UN, Cambodia is obligated to enact a law on the matter, Chanphal explained.
The working group was composed of high-ranking officials from the Ministry of Interior and other ministries. Chanphal was a member of the group, together with several officials from the National Police and other institutions.
“During the meeting, we collected input on the draft law and came up with a list of all the tasks that needed to be carried out to determine if the law can be properly implemented,” he said.
“This is an obligation we have as a member of the UN. It is part of a resolution by the Security Council, and it must be done.”
He said the working group will work to pass the law to the National Assembly for approval as soon as possible. “We are prioritising the drafting of this law,” he said.
