Colonel held over ‘gunpoint argument’

A LIEUTENANT-COLONEL in the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to murder a 40-year-old businessman. Soy Chanthoeurn is accused of pointing a gun at the head of garage owner Kong Kiriphal on Tuesday during a row about money. He was arrested in the capital’s Dangkor district at 8am the next day. “He borrowed US$1,500 from the victim months ago . . . he got angry when he was asked by the victim to return the money for him,” Dangkor district police commander Chim Rithy said yesterday. The suspect is being detained at military police headquarters for questioning.
