Family accuse police of Kampong Cham death

THE family of a 22-year-old Kampong Cham man who was shot and killed in April appeared in court yesterday to clarify their complaints against police, who they accused of the killing. Horm Yoy, the sister of victim Horm Vanda, told the court that her brother was shot by police from Trapaing Phlong commune, in Ponhea Krek district, while visiting his girlfriend. She also asked for US$20,000 in compensation. Nuon Samin, the provincial police chief, said yesterday that the deceased fought with police and “caused the gun to trigger on him and cause his death.” Investigations continue.
