In Brief: Verdict suspended in acid attack case

Phnom Penh Muncipal Court has suspended its verdict in the case of Chea Ratha, the former deputy chief of staff of the National Military Police. Judge Din Sivuthy told lawyers that the verdict will likely be announced today. Chea Ratha is being tried in connection with an incident from May 2008 in which a Phnom Penh woman was seriously disfigured in an acid attack. The victim was the aunt of In Soklyda, a prominent beauty pageant contestant who had a love affair with Chea Ratha. Chea Ratha admits the love affair but denies involvement in the attack.
