PHNOM PENH Viet Nam News -— Cambodian police yesterday arrested opposition lawmaker Um Sam An from the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) for using fake maps on the border with Viet Nam.

According to local media, Um Sam An was arrested in the province of Siem Reap after he returned from a foreign country, where he had lived in exile.

The lawmaker was sent to the Cambodian Interior Ministry’s department of anti-terrorism and transnational crimes.

In August last year, opposition senator Hong Sok Hour was arrested for posting a fake version of a Cambodia-Vieät Nam border treaty.

Hong was charged with falsifying public documents, using fake documents, and inciting chaos undermining social security.

In September last year, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen warned that the government would take strict measures against organisations and individuals who cause chaos to the social order and misunderstandings on border issues. — VNA
