Authorities Steer Clear of Prosecuting Senator, Generals in Mondulkiri Land Grab

A Cambodian People’s Party Senator, military generals, local officials, and commune chiefs have gotten off with only a rap on the knuckles after being involved in an attempted land grab in the northeastern province of Mondulkiri.
