Fourteen charged in casino kidnapping

Svay Rieng provincial court on Monday charged 14 people with kidnapping and extortion after they allegedly detained more than a dozen people at Chatodi Bavet casino in Chantrea district’s Bavet commune, a Ministry of Interior official said yesterday. Chhay Sinarith, director of the Ministry’s Department of Interior Security, said his department worked with local authorities to raid the casino in Bavet last Saturday, where 14 people were alleged to have been detained. “The suspects lent the victims a little bit of money, but they demanded more in repayment,” he said. Chhay Sinarith added that the suspects attempted to extort money from the victims’ families. Svay Rieng provincial prosecutor Keo Thea declined to comment on the case.
