This one will take a lot of explaining,this guy has been instrumental in exposing military involvement in illegal logging'
The quote below comes from the article and is mind-boggling!!
What was he driving an armoured car!
'He alleged that In Rattana threatened to shoot a defiant Chut Wutty and opened fire with an AK-47 when he attempted to drive his car away, but was also killed when a bullet ricocheted off the vehicle.'

More from The Guardian, UK.
I'm very much surprised that so few travellers have views on this appalling action and the corruption which is leading to the demise of the world's forests. This brave man deserves all the support he could get.

Awful business. Im not sure what the international community can do. Corruption seems to be deeply ingrained in Cambodia society. It needs expelling at the roots - however, obviously, this is not a simple task.
It's a very saddening state of affairs and i can only see the problem getting worse in coutries slated as emerging markets.
