Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 15 — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen ordered to dismiss Kim Ponlok, police inspector of Battmabang's Kamrieng District after discovering that he released the brokers who illegally brought migrant workers from Thailand into Cambodia.
The premier told Fresh News CEO Lim Chea Vutha on Monday.
“Apart from dismissal, Kim Ponlok will be sentenced to imprisonment under corruption, serving as the warning for other officials,” the premier said.
Inspector Kim Ponlok admitted that he had assisted the brokers to provide settlements for illegal migrant workers moving from Cambodia to Thailand, and bringing migrant workers from Thailand into Cambodia without being quarantined.
Battambang Police Commissioner already issued a decision to temporarily suspend the work of Kim Ponlok.
