Phnom Penh (VNA) - Cambodian police on April 11 arrested opposition lawmaker Um Sam An from the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) on the charge of using fake maps on the border with Vietnam.

According to local media, Um Sam An was arrested in the province of Siem Reap after he returned from a foreign country, where he had lived in exile.

The lawmaker was sent to the Cambodian Interior Ministry's department of anti-terrorism and transnational crimes.

In August last year, opposition senator Hong Sok Hour was arrested for posting a fake version of a Cambodia-Vietnam border treaty.

Hong was charged with falsifying public documents, using fake documents, and inciting chaos to social security.

In September last year, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen warned to take strict measures against organisations and individuals who cause chaos in social order and misunderstanding on border issues.-VNA
