A number of Preah Sihanouk provincial land management department officials were reshuffled on Friday amid a probe on the controversial coastal land reclamation.

Department head Cheng Srong confirmed at least 10 officials have been reassigned to different posts. But he denied rumours that they had been discharged due to corruption.

“At the time of transfer, there were rumours… in fact nobody lost their jobs. They were just being transferred from one place to another,” he said.

Upon receiving a direct order from Prime Minister Hun Sen, the company which illegally reclaimed parts of Prek Treng beach deployed at least five excavators to reverse the reclamation, Stung Hav district Governor Chhay Sokunda told The Post yesterday.
