Garment robbery suspects face trial

The trial of three people accused of stealing 98 pairs of jeans from a garment factory in Meanchey district in January began at Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday. The owner of the Wan Thong factory, Van Yavchan, filed a complaint to police who charged packaging department Manager Tov Cheu Hong, a Chinese national, packaging line leader Tim Rathmony and security guard Heang Thea with the alleged theft on January 26. Van Yavchan is demanding US$50,000 in compensation from the accused. Deputy prosecutor Top Chhunlong said following the trio’s testimony yesterday, however, that they did not appear to have perpetrated a theft. Judge Ke Sakhorn will issue a verdict on June 6.
