In Brief: SRP Lawyer to fix 'misunderstanding'

The

lawyer for Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Ho Vann, Kong Sam Onn, said

Tuesday that he was going to meet with Tann Mengsroy, the lawyer for 22

military officers who sued his client for defamation and incitement, to

try to broker a compromise. Kong Sam Onn said that the suit was caused

when a local media outlet misquoted Ho Vann, indicating that he had

demeaned the degrees the 22 officers had received from a Vietnamese

military institute. But Kong Sam Onn said the newspaper had already

published a correction, and that his client had no intention of

insulting the soldiers' degrees. "We explained and corrected [the

quotation] already. This suit is because of a misunderstanding," he

said. When contacted Tuesday, Tann Mengsroy declined to comment.
