There are rumours that Gen. Dul Koeun, Chief of Logistics and Finance at the Ministry of Interior, had died.

Gen. Dul Koeun was an arch-rival of the late Gen. Hok Lundy, the Police Commissioner who died of helicopter crash on 9th of November, 2008.

After the arrest of his bodyguard, Col. Pheng Phay, on charges of attempted murder of Mr. Thong Uy Pang, rumours are milling around that Gen. Dul Koeun had been arrested by Military Police and detained at Ministry of Interior along with Gen. Ke Kim Yan. Afterward, there are rumours that Gen. Dul Koeun was seriously sick and was sent to Calmette Hospital. Rumours were milling around that he had died at Calmette hospital and his body was sent to his home for funeral.

Since the sacking of Gen. Ke Kim Yan, the Cambodian People's Party had suffered unfortunate and malicious rumours of internal divisions. There were rumours that Gen. Ke Kim Yan was arrested and detained by the Military Police. Later, rumours are circulating that Mr. Khieu Kanharith, Minister of Information, had died. And now rumours about the death of Gen. Dul Koeun had surfaced.

The rumours about Gen. Dul Koeun's death had been milling around for sometimes, but on the morning of the 4th of March, the rumours had spread like a wild fire.

Unexpectedly, on the morning of the 5th, Gen. Dul Koeun had telephoned Deum Ampil News to say that he is still alive, strong and healthy. And he appeals to the authority to find out the source of the rumours so they can be punished.
