Phnom Penh Municipal Court is set to hand down a verdict to former city
police Chief Heng Pov and three other men today, in connection with the
attempted murder of Thong Uy Pang, editor of the local newspaper Koh
Santepheap. Heng Pov is currently serving a total of 74 years in Prey
Sar prison for multiple convictions, including murder, counterfeiting,
extortion and kidnapping. His defence lawyer, Kav Soupha, confirmed
Monday that his client would appear in court. "Heng Pov will be
escorted to the court to face the charges against him," he said.
