There's an interesting autobiography of his available in local book shops. He was a powerful commander in Koh Kong the Revolutionary Army of Kampuchea, but they tried to purge him and he escaped with many of his forces to Thailand (He is an ethnic Thai) early on, maybe 1973-4. He worked there, maybe as a fisherman, and later on ,maybe 1977, went by boat to Vietnam to liaise with the people there, eventually becoming a leader in the National Salvation Front.

Defense Minister Tea Banh Awarded ‘Samdech’ Honorific


With the title “Samdech,” which translates roughly to “The Greatest,” General Banh joins a small but rapidly growing cohort of senior CPP leaders that includes Prime Minister Hun Sen, his wife Bun Rany, and deceased former party president Chea Sim.


The decree signed by King Norodom Sihamoni lists General Banh’s full title as “Samdech Pichey Sena,” or “The Greatest, Special, Victorious Commander.” The decree describes the defense minister, who sits on the ruling party’s standing committee, as a “great leader, loyal to the throne, defending democracy and nation.”
