The Koh Kong provincial governor, Yuth Phuthang, has been removed from his post, a source close to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Tea Banh said on Saturday.
He will apparently be replaced by Bun Let, Sre Ambel district governor.
“The reducing in rank of Yuth Phuthang was done before Thailand recalled its ambassador to Phnom Penh; it did not taking place during or after both countries recalled their ambassadors,” the source added.
To demote the Koh Kong Governor was apparently just “due to administration work,” and does not involve to any internal issues or disputes between Yuth Phuthang and the Government, the source added.
The Government decree to demote Yuth Phuthang has not yet been made public and the decree to assign a new governor is also yet to be formally issued.
