Senator Apologizes Over Land Grab, Still Protected by Immunity

A senator accused of land grabbing in Mondulkiri province has written an apology to Prime Minister Hun Sen about his “mistakes in the past,” promising to “learn and practice following Samdech’s wisdom for the rest of my life.”

Nory Srun is one of 10 public officials implicated in encroaching protected areas in Mondulkiri by an inter-ministerial investigation in August. A subsequent letter to Hun Sen recommending appropriate penalties advised that Srun be removed for using his position and power to instruct local officials to sign illegal land documents.

In a letter submitted to the Council of Ministers, Srun denied that he had actually controlled any of the land in question.
