In Brief: Appeal date set in acid attack case

After several delays, an appeal against the acquittal of a former Military Police official accused of involvement in a brutal acid attack against her lesbian lover’s aunt will be heard on November 27, a lawyer said Thursday. The appeal was lodged after Chea Ratha, former deputy chief of staff of the Military Police, was found not guilty of masterminding the May 2008 attack that left Ya Soknim, the aunt of prominent beauty queen In Soklyda, scarred for life. Pich Vicheka, Chea Ratha’s lawyer, confirmed the date had been set.
