The National Police today rejected an accusation made by former opposition leader Sam Rainsy that National Police Chief General Neth Savoeun and his family are preparing to flee the country, saying that the police chief is always with the Cambodian people.
In a public statement today, National Police Spokesman Lieutenant General Chhay Kim Khoeun, said Gen Savoeun has a duty to lead police forces to maintain security, public order and safety of the people.
“General Neth Savoeun is a senior official at the National Police who is always with Khmers and care about security and safety of the people,” Lt Gen Kim Khoeun said.
“He has no history of fleeing the country, committing treason, making an incitement to cause chaos or do any activity that intends to destroy the interest of the people and nation like the convict Sam Rainsy and his accomplices.” he added.
Mr Rainsy, who has been living in exile in France, wrote on his Facebook page on Friday that Gen Savoeun and his wife Hun Kim Leng and three other daughters are preparing to flee to the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis after committing corruption.
