(*) In the scandal of illegal monkey trafficking from Cambodia into the US, one should remember the case of Heng Pov.
With the complicity of some corrupt elements in the Malaysia police and judiciary, the former head of Cambodia’s police Heng Pov was repatriated by force to Cambodia in December 2006.
The Cambodian government feared that he would reveal crime and corruption at the summit of power.
The same Cambodian authorities now fear that Agriculture Ministry official Kry Masphal who has been recently arrested in the US may be about to spill the beans if he is judged by an independent court outside of Cambodia, such as in the US.
So Cambodia’s government absolutely wants to get Kry Masphal back, by first having him transferred to Cambodia’s embassy in Washington. Then they will help him "flee the country" as feared by US prosecutors.
