‘Very Drunk’ Traffic Police Chief Fired, Not Fined

A police officer has been removed from his position as Kampong Thom traffic police chief after allegedly driving drunk and crashing his vehicle earlier this month, but has not been fined for the apparent traffic violation, a police official said on Monday.

Rom Sovichea, the ex-traffic police chief who crashed his personal car into road barricades on May 15, has retained his police rank and has faced no criminal penalties for allegedly driving drunk, said National Police spokesman Chhay Kim Khoeun.

Kim Khoeun told VOD last week that Sovichea appeared to be intoxicated at the time of the accident.
