Full Implementation of Cambodia Anti-Corruption Law Pushed

San Chey, Network Fellow of ANSA-EAP in Cambodia pushed for the full implementation of the anti-corruption law of Cambodia with the news that:

"Minister of Economy and Finance Keat Chhon has requested that the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation repay an estimated US$5.5 million it paid to “ghost officials” and used in “irregular expenses”"

San Chey was interviewed by the Phnom Phen Post and where he opined that:

“...more action should be taken and the anticorruption law should be fully implemented.
I think that besides forcing [the ministry] to repay the budget, those individual officials responsible must be punished in accordance with the anticorruption law as a warning to other officials,” Chey said.
