'ACID' ATTACK: City Court re-launches attack query

'ACID' ATTACK
A man representing the victim of an alleged acid attack will appear for questioning today at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, which has re-launched its investigation into the case. On the morning of January 4, 22-year-old Hor Tin was doused with a litre of fluid by local dentist Lim Soma, who was arrested after the attack but released two days later. She admitted to pouring the substance, but said it was only “water you use to make your teeth look white” taken from her dental practice. Kea Soheang, who had hired Hor Tin to do repair work on his home, said he would appear for questioning in place of his employee, who received the court summons on Thursday. The court had originally dropped the charges and asked the parties to reach an agreement outside of the court. Their failure to do so led the court to re-launch its investigation, said deputy prosecutor Ek Chheng Hout.
