Charges for suspect in foreigner shootings

Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday charged an alleged gunman for his role in the armed robberies and shootings of two foreign nationals late last month, a police official said.

Sa Ravan, 25, was charged with robbery and illegal weapons use, deputy municipal police chief Chuon Narin said.

“He has been sent to jail at Prey Sar prison now,” he said.

Ravan’s associate, Chea Sovann, 32, remains hospitalised. He was shot four times when he opened fire at the police while attempting to evade arrest on Monday night. Police have said similar charges await him.

The pair allegedly confessed to eight armed robberies during the past month. The highest profile of those were two separate robberies, during which an American man and a Japanese woman were shot.

According to Narin, Ravan had only just recently been released from jail – where he had served time for a robbery-murder – when the crimes occurred.
