MoI creates National Police Sport Union

The Ministry of Interior has announced the discontinuation of its Interior Ministry Sport Committee and the formation of the National Police Sport Union, according to a document obtained by the Post yesterday. The ‘Decision 635’ document, dated April 13 and signed by the Minister of Interior Sar Kheng, names General Neth Savouen as the President of the new organisation, with other generals and high profile ministry officials given executive roles. The move will enable Cambodia to join 68 other nations as a member of the International Union of Police Sports, which was founded in 1990 and holds regular championships in disciplines including cross country running, football, judo, marathon, cycling, shooting, triathlon and volleyball. The union has also addressed criticisms over the management of the Sports Committee, which allowed several sports clubs and associations use the Ministry of Interior name without proper regulation.
