Four charged for shooting on Phnom Penh streets

Four men accused of firing a gun from their moving car in Phnom Penh last week were officially charged by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday, and three are scheduled to be sent to prison today to await trial, said deputy prosecutor Heang Sopheak.

“I have charged them with two charges: using weapons without authorisation and driving while drunk,” Sopheak said.  

Local businessman Ngoy Sim, 33, along with his brother, student Ngoy Seng Ngy, 19, and fellow students, Ly Bora, 20, and Soeun Bora, 19, each face at least two years in prison if found guilty, he added.

All but Seng Ngy, who was wounded during the arrest, are slated to be sent to Prey Sar Prison today.

During the arrest, police said, officers fired several shots at the car’s tyres, one of which ricocheted and struck Seng Ngy in the eye.

He is now in Vietnam receiving treatment for his injuries, but will join the other suspects in Prey Sar upon his release.
