Accused Police chief ‘too sick’ for court

The police chief of Prey Veng province’s Svay Anthor district, Pum Kann, arrested on Wednesday for allegedly fatally shooting an unarmed man during a raid on a cockfight, missed a court yesterday, claiming he was sick.

“Kann was already sent to court, but he felt ill and was sent back to the provincial police station, but I do not know what’s wrong with him,” said provincial prosecutor Meas Sopheak yesterday.

“The deputy prosecutor, Muong Sarin, has not charged him yet – tomorrow he will be charged.” Kann, whose victim was holding a baby when struck by the bullet, claims he intended to fire a warning shot into the air.
