Virak Buntham Truck Stopped With Smuggled Lizards

Siem Reap: On August 17, 2021, in Balang commune, Prasat Bakong district, Siem Reap province, a Virak Buntham Express truck was stopped by the Forestry Administration.

The VET vehicle was driving from Mondulkiri province to Preah Vihear province (where it is thought the boxes were sent from), and then from to Siem Reap towards Sihanoukville.

Officers found 984 large lizards packed in the vehicle. The Siem Reap Provincial Forestry Administration will issue fines according to the 2002 Forestry Law. The evidence and the truck were kept at the Banteay Srei District Administration Office in Siem Reap Province to wait for the company owner to come in and solve the problem legally.

The Siem Reap Provincial Forestry Administration, which cracked down on this wildlife trafficking case, presumed this vehicle had transported such items many times already. AREY

UPDATE: Oknha Sour Virak, CEO of Virakbuntham Express, confirmed that there was a demand for a $ 30,000 fine in exchange for the release of the truck.
