The fate of two Burmese nationals arrested Friday in Battambang province while they attempted to solicit military support for an anti-Rangoon armed faction remains unclear, government officials and a UN refugee worker said Wednesday.
The two men arrested by Battambang Military Police on charges of entering Cambodia illegally are being held at the Military Court in Phnom Penh, Military Police Commander Sao Sokha said Wednesday.
The two will be investigated, said Sao Sokha adding he had no further details.
Mol Roeup, director of military intelligence, claimed Wednesday he had no information on the two, despite the fact that other officials said he was in charge of the investigation.
A representative for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Phnom Penh also said Wednesday that attempts to locate the two men have so far drawn a blank with Cambodian authorities.
