Disgraced top cop gets five more years in jail

PHNOM Penh Municipal Court sentenced jailed former municipal police chief Heng Pov to five years in prison yesterday after finding him guilty of illegal human detention in a case that dates back to 2003. The complainant told the court last month that he was held from April to July 2003 on robbery allegations, despite the fact that a judge had ordered his release due to lack of evidence. With the sentence, Heng Pov – who was arrested in 2006 and convicted on a litany of charges, including extortion, kidnapping and murder – is facing nearly 100 years behind bars.
