Khun Sear disputant set free, daughter denied bail

A Tuol Kork resident arrested last month following a complaint by a powerful businessman who wants his family’s land was released on bail yesterday.

His daughter, however, remains in jail. The family of Ly Srea Kheng, 60, has been involved in a long-running dispute with tycoon Khun Sear.

After municipal court judge Ly Lip Meng ordered his release, Srea Kheng said: “I will go back to live on my land. I dare to die on my land.” But his daughter Ly Seav Minh was denied bail and remains in Prey Sar prison.

Both were charged with “using violence” against a legal property owner.
