ADB seeks cooperation with ACU

Cambodia Herald, November 30, 2013

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Asian Development Bank (ADB) seeks cooperation with Cambodia’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) to fight against corruption in projects that ADB funds.

In a meeting Saturday between Nuon Sothimon, ACU’s department chief of juridical affairs and Lorraine Wang-Reyes, ADB’s principal integrity specialist, they discussed cooperation in combating graft and the ability of the ACU to issue arrests.
"ADB would like to cooperate with the Anti-Corruption Unit, and in cases there is corruption in the framework of ADB aids, we will send the case to the unit to open an investigation," said Lorraine Wang-Reyes.

"ADB has a bureau for combating graft and integrity, which can inspect all projects funded by ADB, but ADB doesn’t have power to arrest anyone other than punishing them by delaying the aids."

ADB also wants to cooperate and provide training to the Anti-Corruption Unit on inspecting electronic equipment, accounting and other sectors, she said.

ADB hopes that there will be good cooperation in the fight against corruption, she added.

The Anti-Corruption Unit led by Senior Minister Om Yintieng, had arrested two Mondolkiri province electricity officials, and the deputy director of the Sihanouk Tax Department for corruption earlier in the week.

The ACU had also sent documents to the court to take legal action against the department chief, whose specific department, and name is yet to be announced.

To Mr. San Sowith, at world Khmer radio,

Before you talk please think twice. We know that you love Khmer nation, but your radio talk (PI NISS PI NOUS) seems more and more create a conflict between Khmer. Khmer need to be united for this time. Since 34 years Khmer has never been united as this time. You ought to encourage for Khmer get more united. Never talk which give the munitions to CPP. Be patience. Youn has so many tricks to break Khmer. We have noticed that Mom Sonando who usually attacks Sam Rainsy went to see you in order to collect for his radio station, since then you tries to attack Sam Rainsy like him. You said Sam Rainsy is afraid of the prison, not like Mom Sonando. You know what? Sam Rainsy, he knows if he get in the prison he won't have chance to get out, but Mom Sonando will not afraid of the prison because he knows that he will get out. Please tell the people in your radio the motif that Mom Sonando got out from the prison last time. Have you thought that nobody can have the radio station in Cambodia except the CPP gang? And Mom Sonando has one. This guy earns a lot of money for his radio station, but he lies to the Khmer people. Mr. San Sowith, Can you proof that Mom Sonando is not Youn. Seek out his root and parents. His wife is a Youn, her family name is DINH. Before you talk please think twice. You have a microphone of a radio station is a lot. The wind of the politics could change the direction because of you. You must notice that media is the most important in warfare. YOUN USE KHMER ROUGE TO KILL KHMER; YOUN USE HUN SEN SWALLOW CAMBODIA; YOUN MOM SONANDO SHOULD USE YOU MR. HASSAN TO BREAK KHMER'S SOLIDARITY. If you look at Kem Veasna, he is a real spy Youn. Mr. Ear Kim Sréng has just clarified his individual since few days.
Youn is everywhere. We are now having Youn disease, this is because of Sihanouk. You know it. Therefore, we need to pay really attention.

We listen to your online radio station every day, sometimes it needs to stop several time before we could finish to listen because of the negativity from your comments toward CNRP’s leader seem out of limits. Please remember that we always love you because you are a Khmer patriotic.

11:16AM, I agree with you but there's no point requesting San Sowitt and his radio crew to do anything for a political party as they see themselves as a radio station that is independent and broadcasting the truth! (Or just their own opinions) So don't bother with them.

Sometime I think they are jealous that they received so much contributions on behalf of CNRP and not much goes to their radio station!

In the end we're all Khmer, we must learn to work with different or various Khmer personalities ! Please just continue our great work towards our Jeat Khemara!

Everyone has different Khmer ways to contribute so just continue with our wonderful ways of contribution!

Su Su all Khmer !

=This is pure bullshit statement about the ADB! The ADB is in Cambodia to make a profit just like the garment factories! Who doesn't know that the ACU is the most corrupted institution in Cambodia! The ADB will cooperate with the criminals as long as the ADB make a profit!

ADB = principal + interest
