In Brief: Five charged in kidnapping case

Siem

Reap provincial court on Wednesday charged five men suspected of

kidnapping the daughter of a military police chief on March 6. Court

deputy prosecutor Touch Chanphakdey said that the men were charged with

detaining a person to extort money and were now awaiting trial. "If

they are convicted, they will be punished with life imprisonment," he

said. Morn Charkriya, the 16-year-old daughter of Siem Reap's Military

Commander Morn Samon, was kidnapped Friday but released on Saturday

after private negotiations between her parents and the kidnappers.
