On December 06, 2018 a truck forced its way through a mandatory Wildlife Alliance check point. The truck driver didn’t stop for Ministry Of Environment officers, forced trough their barrier and disappeared inside a private house. While the house was surrounded by Sre Ambel rangers, Ministry of Environment officers obtained a search warrant from the Court.
Ministry of Environment officers found 1.67 cubic meter of precious timber (Thnong). The dealer was taken into custody to Koh Kong Court, prosecuted and sentenced to prison.
