In Brief: Acid attack hearing delayed once more

The acid attack case involving Chea Ratha, former deputy chief of staff of the National Military Police, has again been postponed, officials said. The hearing, which was scheduled for Friday, has been postponed to an unspecified date later this year. Choun Sunleng, deputy president of the Appeal Court, said the court did not hear the case because Chea Ratha’s lawyer was not present, adding that the hearing would be held “before December”. Chea Ratha is accused of instigating an acid attack against her lesbian lover’s aunt in May 2008.
