Cold-hearted cops put trucker’s delivery on ice

A truckload of ice turned into little more than a truckload of water in Pailin province following its seizure by police on Sunday.

The truck was on its way to deliver 100 bags of tube ice, but was pulled over by provincial police for supposedly lacking a licence to do business in the province – an accusation that was met with bewilderment as the driver claimed to have been selling the ice in various provinces unhindered.

The case has sparked criticism among the public, who alleged that the police may have vested interests in other tube ice businesses in the province.
