The forestry administration in cooperation with Stung Treng Provincial Court raided a house on Wednesday, yielding hundreds of pieces of illegal timber.

Provincial court spokesman Chhum Seanghak confirmed the raid, but said no arrests were made. He declined further comment, referring questions to deputy prosecutor Kim Hoksan. Mr Hoksan, who joined the operation, refused multiple requests for comment.

According to local media, the timber was hidden in the house by traders who intended to export it to Vietnam.

The timber has been sent to the provincial forestry administration for measurement.

Provincial forestry administration official Sok Sida said they had yet to measure the timber and were still looking for the owners.
