Prime Minister Hun Sen has called on relevant authorities to continue curbing illegal smuggling of timer across borders and protect natural resources.

Speaking during a closing conference at the Agriculture Ministry today, Mr Hun Sen ordered National military police commander General Sao Sokha in charge of National Committee for National Resource Crime Prevention to continue to crack down on forest crimes across the borders.

“Please Excellency Sao Sokha continue to protect natural resources, especially preventing and stamping out the smuggling of timer across illegal corridors,” he said.

In 2017, the UK-based Environmental Investigation Agency called for a rosewood trade suspension against Vietnam, accusing it of accepting fake Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species permits from Cambodia.
