Fixherman killed by village chief

A 28-year-old man in Prey Veng province was shot dead on Saturday by a village chief while he was using electrodes to fish at Ou Anchanh stream in Prey Veng’s Tanal village, Sithor Kandal district. Sithor Kandal district police Chief Yun Sok Neth said Rous Sovoeun, the village chief, was attempting to crack down on the illegal fishing technique, but regrettably used excessive force to do so. The victim, 28-year-old Buor Bourn, was a Sam Rainsy Party activist, but Yun Sok Neth said police believe the killing occurred only because of the illegal fishing.
