The National Assembly Orders the Ministry of Public Work and Transport to Take Action on Vehicles Having State, Police, and Royal Cambodian Armed Forces Number Plates – Monday, 8.12.2008

Posted on 9 December 2008. Filed under: Week 590 |

The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 590

 
“State, police, and the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces [RCAF] number plates identify state vehicles, and they are used for public activities of the state, but they are also used by some officials and wicked people who put such numbers on their vehicles in order to commit illegal acts, such as drug dealing and transporting luxury wood.
 
“Police and RCAF number plates are often put on luxurious cars belonging to private individuals, and they are being driven everywhere and against many regulations, and with no respect for the law. As for the authorities along public roads, when they see vehicles with police or RCAF number plates violating traffic laws or other laws, they do not dare to take action on those vehicles according to the law, but many of them only dare to take action on vehicles of normal citizens in order to extort money. Seeing some vehicles with police and RCAF number plates driving along the roads and doing illegal acts affecting state institutions, the Ministry of Public Work and Transportation, and the Sam Rainsy Party, sent two different letters regarding the use of state, police, and RCAF number plates by individuals. The Sam Rainsy Party parliamentarians sent a letter to the Minister of Public Work and Transport, Mr. Tram Iv Tek, to take action on the use of state, police, and RCAF number plates by private individuals, while the Ministry of Public Work and Transport sent a letter to the National Assembly, to ask for action to monitor and to seize state number plates – according the new traffic law – from all vehicles that use state, police, and RCAF number plates.
 
“The National Assembly issued a notice to the Minister of Public Works and Transport, Mr. Tram Iv Tek, on 4 December 2008, saying that the National Assembly allows the Ministry of Public work and Transport to take action to monitor and to seize number plates of private vehicles that use police and RCAF number plates.
 
“The letter of the National Assembly added that at present, there are many private vehicles using police and RCAF number plates , but according to the new traffic law, if private vehicles use state number plates, it is a serious crime.
 
“It should be noted that the decision of the National Assembly was made after the Ministry of Public Work and Transport had sent a letter to the National Assembly, to ask the Assembly to monitor and to seize state, police, and RCAF number plates.” Khmer Sthapana, Vol.1, #153, 7-8.12.2008
