News Report Places Heng Pov in Malaysia

By Douglas Gillison and Phann Ana

Cambodian police are participating in the hunt for fugitive former Phnom Penh police chief Heng Pov in Malaysia, according to a Thursday news report.

Agence France-Presse quoted Mohamad Johari Baharum, Malaysia's deputy minister for internal security, as saying he had been informed that Cambodian police had arrived in the country.

"The Cambodian police are looking for him here," he said, adding that it remained unclear what authorities would do with Heng Pov if he were caught.

"I am not very sure if he will be extradited," Mohamad Johari Baharum said. "If we manage to track him down maybe we will surrender him to the Cambodian police who are here in Malaysia right now."

Malaysian newspaper The New Straits Times cited an unnamed diplomat this week as saving that Heng Pov’s Malaysian visa would expire Oct 1.

Interior Ministry Penal Police Chief Mok Chito said Cambodian officers are cooperating with Malaysian police.

"Our officials went there to present documents and request cooperation from the [Criminal Investigation Department] and the Interpol police of Malaysia," he said. "Our law enforcement officers are normally cooperating with Malaysia but are not hunting him there," he said.

Cambodian informants in Malaysia have kept Cambodian authorities informed of Heng Pov's movements, Mok Chito said.

"Heng Pov is moving around with his family members and foreign friends who do business with him in drugs," Mok Chito alleged.

One police official said on condition of anonymity that two generals, one from the police and one from the military, flew to Malaysia on Sept 2 and then again shortly before Pchum Ben, but have since returned to Cambodia. The generals were looking for Heng Pov and requested his extradition, the official added.

David Chen, an Australian attorney for Heng Pov, and officials at the Malaysian Embassy in Phnom Penh did not respond to emailed requests for comment.

Heng Pov left Cambodia on July 23, a week before a warrant for his arrest was announced. He entered Malaysia on Sept 1 after his entry pass to Singapore expired.

Instead of HENG Pov, HUN Sen and HUK Longdy as well as Ah MOK Chito must be sentenced to life in prison.

I don't understand why AH HUN SEN send only 2 Cambodian generals to capture AH HENG POV! Oh well! Maybe one Cambodian general grabs AH HENG POV's hair and the other grabs AH HENG POV's ball! ahahah!

I suggest that AH HUN SEN need to send at least 10 Cambodian generals! Here is the breakdown of what all these stupid Cambodian general need to do:

-The first and second Cambodian generals need to hold AH HENG POV's hands on both side!
-The third Cambodian general need to stand behind AH HENG POV and kick his ass!
-And the last seven Cambodian generals need to carry all the money back to Cambodia! ahahahaha!

Go get him boys!

What Moc Chito is saying is lie he is accusing others of what he is (eg drug)! Yes what you wrote earlier is true, why don't interpol arrest Hun Sen, Hoc Lundy and Moc Chito? I believe that the Malaysian police is intelligent enough to understand that it is all fake... The Cambodian authorities can lie to their people but how can the Malaysian Police who more professional can believe them? I'm sure they understood clearly that the Cambodian government is so afraid that he will release their durty things that they want to do with him like they did with Ho Sok..
If he was really a murderer How can you judge such murders in only one day? Even in Malaysia it would take longer!... It proves that they want to kill him to be sure that he will stay silent.
Didn't Hun Sen Himself said few week ago that anybody who would go against him had to prepare their coffin?
good luck Heng Peo
