Businessman appeals for bail in wife’s case

LAWYERS for Phnom Penh businessman Khaou Chuly have appealed against a Municipal Court ruling that denied his second wife bail on an attempted murder charge.

Earlier this month, the court charged Seng Chanda with plotting to kill Suv Chantha, her husband’s daughter by his first wife. Suv Chantha is also the wife of Suv Chanthol, vice chairman of the Council for the Development of Cambodia and a former minister of public works and transport.

Lim Vanna, Seng Chanda’s lawyer, said the appeal was sent on Friday to the Appeal Court, which is expected to rule within a fortnight.

“According to legal procedure, the Appeal Court has to make a decision on the case within two weeks, but until now I have not heard any information,” he said.

Lim Vanna said earlier that Seng Chanda was suffering from ill health, including “heart problems and blood pressure” while in prison.

Ouk Savuth, prosecutor general of the Appeal Court, said yesterday that he had yet to receive the appeal.
