Run Rath Veasna Tells Chiefs of Posts Countrywide Not to Listen to Sar Kheng’s Order – Friday, 28.11.2008

The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 588

“Compared to what Khmer Machas Srok published a few days ago, the director of the Anti-Economic Crimes Police Department, Mr. Run Rath Veasna and his partisans really do not listen to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Mr. Sar Kheng, because they consider Mr. Sar Kheng, who follows the line of Mr. Chea Sim, the president of the Senate, to be a poisonous prolet snake.
 
“According to a source from the Ministry of Interior on 26 November 2008, Mr. Run Rath Veasna summoned the heads of all [anti-economic crimes] posts around the country, whom he had deployed to extort money from businesspeople, for a meeting in order to tell them not to listen to, and not to follow Mr. Sar Kheng’s orders.
 
“During a ceremony to assign four star insignia to Mr. Net Savoeun and to announce his appointment as director-general of the National Police, to replace Mr. Hok Lundy, who died in the helicopter crash, as well as to promote and to announce the appointment of Mr. Kang Sakhan as deputy director-general of the National Police to replace Mr. Net Savoeun on 21 November 2008, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Mr. Sar Kheng seriously warned the economic police of Mr. Run Rath Veasna, and ordered him to recall all forces deployed to extort money from businesspeople who export goods illegally. It was reported that Mr. Run Rath Veasna plans to recall some immediately, leaving only two posts in Phnom Penh and in Kompong Cham.
 
“However, Mr. Run Rath Veasna thinks simply that Mr. Net Savoeun is easier to talk to than Mr. Hok Lundy; actually he still keeps his forces in all posts in order to seek money for him and for his wife who is staying at home.
 
“The same source of information added that some days ago, Mr. Run Rath Veasna told his mother to meet with Mr. Mao Chandara, the deputy director-general of the National Police who has close relations with Mr. Net Savoeun. The same sources added that Mr. Run Rath Veasna told his mother to persuade Mr. Mao Chandara to talk with Mr. Net Savoeun: if he wants ten thousand dollars per month, it is OK, just to be allowed to still stay in this position of director of the Anti-Economic Crimes Police.
 
“It seems that the talks of his mother with Mr. Mao Chandara, and then the talk between Mr. Mao Chandara and Mr. Net Savoeun, were successful, because Mr. Run Rath Veasna summoned all chiefs of the posts who are deployed to extort money from businesspeople, to meet at the Anti-Economic Crimes Police Department on 26 November 2008, and he ordered them not to listen to Mr. Sar Kheng’s order; they have to stay where they are, just they have to fulfill their obligation by sending in enough money regularly.
 
“Some Anti-Economic Crimes Police officers went on to say that they can, at different posts countrywide, earn a lot of money from illegal imports of goods, from wood business, and from the import of goods with no quality into the country, which severely affects the health of the citizens. Mr. Run Rath Veasna’s mother was told that she should go to pagodas to do good deeds rather than doing sinful acts by colluding with her son to seek money by allowing dishonest businesspeople to import goods with no quality into Cambodia which affect the health of Khmer citizens.
 
“Some people at the Anti-Economic Crimes Police said that Mr. Net Savoeun should serve the citizens well, because he is known to have a lot of money and property already, and his assignment to replace Mr. Hok Lundy should lead to more improvements compared to Mr. Hok Lundy’s work, especially to eliminate crimes, like the case of Mr. Run Rath Veasna, where recently Mr. Sar Kheng, without using his name, accused him of deploying forces to extort money, which results in the rising prices of goods.
 
“Mr. Net Savoeun is trusted by officials of the opposition party and of civil society, they hope he will improve the institution of the police to be better than at Mr. Hok Lundy’s time. But if Mr. Run Rath Veasna’s mother did contact Mr. Mao Chandara to discuss to provide monthly bribes in exchange for maintaining his position, that will invite criticism from citizens.
 
“However, many leaders of the Cambodian People’s Party are not happy with the character of Mr. Run Rath Veasna who dares to look down on high ranking leaders of the Cambodia People’s Party like Mr. Sar Kheng, refusing to recall his followers deployed to extort money from businesspeople, and even to ordered them in a meeting not to listen to Mr. Sar Kheng’s order. What Mr. Run Rath Veasna said is a brazen-faced refusal to obey leaders of the Cambodian People’s Party; he thinks he can rely on his money to bribe Mr. Net Savoeun, and he dares to look down on Mr. Sar Kheng.
 
Khmer Machas Srok could not reach Mr. Run Rath Veasna for any comment, and if this accusation is true, that means Mr. Run Rath Veasna is very insolent, so that the leaders of the Cambodian People’s Party should take immediate action, so that the reputation of the party will not suffer.” Khmer Machas Srok, Vol.2, #292, 28.11.2008
