The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 541

“Siem Reap: Leadership officials of the Siem Reap Department of Environment told Rasmei Kampuchea that the Director-General of Administration of the Ministry of Environment issued an order to the Siem Reap Department of Environment to confiscate a Toyota car, a motorcycle, and other office equipment from Mr. Tang Chenda, Deputy Director of the Department of Environment, and to keep them in the department, considering that the deputy director of the Siem Reap Department of Environment has used the car and the motorcycle for private purposes.

“According to sources in the Siem Reap Department of Environment, the Director-General of Administration, following an order from Mr. Mok Mareth, the Minister of Environment, recently issued such an order to the Department of Environment of Siem Reap.

“The sources above said that Mr. Tang Chenda, the Deputy Director of the Siem Reap Department of Environment, seldom comes to work and he is even absent without permission.

“Working as a deputy director of the Siem Reap Department of Environment, Mr. Tang Chenda was provided by the department a Toyota car with a state number plate 0228 for transportation. However, after getting the car, he does not use it for the department work but he uses it for personal purposes, and he keeps it at home instead of keeping it at the department.

“Furthermore, public servants at the department said that a motorcycle is also taken by Mr. Chenda, and he keeps it at home. Moreover, a number of equipments in the office have been locked by Mr. Chenda in his room, and he even does not come to work.

“Officials in the department said that in general, government cars are to be used for government work, and they have to be kept at the department at the end of a mission or of every day’s work. However the deputy director of the Siem Reap Department of Environment acts contrary to the statute for civil servants – i.e. he uses the car and the motorcycle of the department for personal purposes and he keeps them at his house.

“Mr. Chev Phal, the Director of the Siem Reap Department of Environment, told the newspaper Rasmei Kampuchea that the department really got a letter from the Ministry of Environment to confiscate the car and the motorcycle, and to keep them at the department.

“Mr. Chev Phal added, however, that the department has not carried out the requested action – it waits for an arrangement to be found at an internal meeting. Mr. Chev Phal said that the internal meeting will be held soon, summoning Mr. Tang Chenda, the deputy director of the department, to attend the meeting, so that he then hand over the car and the motorcycle to be kept at the department, and to be used according to assignments by the department.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.15, #4478, 2.1.2008
