Court delays hearing in machine-gun attack

PHNOM Penh Municipal Court yesterday postponed the questioning of three people who quarreled with a police officer last month, allegedly prompting him to open fire on their family. Uo Soy, 42, and her nephew and brother were charged with intentional battery after an axe was allegedly thrown at police officer Vong Saneath.

Vong Saneath has reportedly confessed to firing at the family with an AK-47, saying he acted in self-defence.

Uo Soy’s husband and son were killed in the fray. Am Sam Ath, a technical supervisor for rights group Licadho, said the hearing had been postponed so the trio could obtain representation. No date had been set. CHRANN CHAMROEUN
