The National Military Police commander has ordered a reshuffle of military police commanders in several provinces.
A senior police officer who asked not to be named said yesterday that General Sao Sokha had requested the shake-up.
Kampong Chhnang military police commander Brigadier General Meas Sovann will move to become Battambang military police commander.
Battambang military police commander Brigadier General Por Vannak will meanwhile be promoted to major general, becoming deputy commander of the National Military Police.
Colonel Born Bin, deputy police commander for Banteay Meanchey will be promoted to brigadier general, taking up the post of the provincial military police commander instead.
Current Banteay Meanchey military police commander Brigadier General Or Borin will move to work at the national military police.
Colonel Chhuon Kimsan, deputy military police commander in Prey Veng province will also be promoted to the top job in his province, while existing post-holder Brigadier General Men Siborn will shift to the national military police.
Colonel Hem Bonarel, bureau security commander at the National Military Police, will become a brigadier general as Mondulkiri military police commander, instead of Brigadier General Sak Saraing, who will move to the post in Kampong Chhnang.
Gen Sokha could not be reached for comment.
Brigadier General Eng Hy, spokesman for the national military police, said the reshuffle was yet to be made official.
Brigadier General Borin also said he had not received formal notice of his job move.
