The Ministry of Environment and Pursat officials have criticized conservation group Wildlife Alliance for burning the vehicle of a Pursat resident for allegedly transporting illegal timber.
On August 5, a team from Wildlife Alliance confronted two tractor-driven carts, called “koyun” in Khmer, according to a provincial police statement. It added that the Wildlife Alliance team, which comprised three Cambodians and one foreign national, burnt one of the two-wheel tractors.
“It was not related to our authorities,” read the August 8 statement.
