The Royal Government of Cambodia is committed to combating all forms of corruption as has been reiterated by Samdech Prime Minister in a Seminar on Anti Corruption Law held on 17-18 August 2005 and in other public forums. To implement Samdech Prime Minister's commitment, the following results have been achieved:
1- Administrative sanctions
Administrative sanctions have been levied against 7 officials, four of whom were transferred from position and three were suspended in violation of the Forestry Law.
2- Court indictment and incarceration
III- Prosecution by Courts
11 government officials have been sentenced by the court for illegal forest clearance in the Dragon Tail region of Rattnakiri Province (as per article 38 of the Criminal Law for the Transitional Period).
MONASRI has also developed its priority Action Plan which included Draft Law on Inspection and Draft Law on Access to Information to support RGC's effort on combating corruption as has been specified in the Rectangular Strategy.
MONASRI hopes that development partners would provide support to MONASRI to implement its priority Action Plan as above.
RGC is committed to rooting out all forms of corruption with capacity, predictability, transparency and accountability in all actions (NSDP 2006-2010).
RGC has firm political commitment to combating corruption with concrete actions. Anyone found guilty of corruption will be prosecuted.
