Bail request denied

THE Supreme Court denied a bail request yesterday for former Pursat provincial prosecutor Top Chan Sereyvuth who is currently serving a 19-year prison sentence on charges of corruption, extortion, and false imprisonment. Supreme Court Judge Saly Theara said yesterday that Top Chan Sereyvuth’s attorney Sem Chenda had requested that his client be released on bail to receive treatment for health problems. “If he is sick he can receive treatment at the hospital by request of the court, but the Supreme Court denied the appeal,” Saly Theara said. Top Chan Sereyvuth reportedly suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure, and knee problems.
