A rice trader on Monday filed a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Unit, Prime Minister Hun Senís Cabinet and three ministries alleging that officials in Kompong Cham province had wrongly fined her for an overweight truck after using improperly weighted scales. Saing Darlin had her truck impounded by public works officials in Tbong Khmum district on December 2 as she was trying to transport 23 tons of paddy rice to the Vietnamese border from Siem Reap. Officials have refused to return the vehicle unless she pays a fine of 6.13 million riel, or about $1,500.* ďI brought rice
