Pol Tith Theany, a former CNRP official in Kampong Chhang province, was arrested on May 17 (today), on charges of unauthorized medical practice.
Kampong Chhnang’s provincial police chief, Khov Ly, reported that Mr Theany was a teacher, but acted as a doctor – giving out medicine and injections to patients – without having the proper education or being licensed by the Provincial Health Department.
Chief Ly said the arrest of Mr Theany was made by court order, following a complaint brought on by a Provincial Heath Department official.
“Mr Theany was ordered to stop his activities a long time ago, but he did not listen. He keeps practicing as a doctor without a license until now. We’ve arrested him.”
Mr Theany is now being questioned at the provincial court.
