Journalist for The Truth allegedly breaks laws

A Journalist writing for a Battambang newspaper called The Truth allegedly procured fake plates and tried to sell a stolen moto for a friend, a provincial court heard yesterday.

Roeun Sam, 46, a reporter for paper Kapit - which translates as ‘truth’- was charged as an accomplice in the theft of a Battambang villager’s moto on September 26.

Deputy chief of the Battambang Provincial Police Colonel Cheth Vanny alleged Roeun’s friend Chan Rasy, 38, stole the vehicle after leaving a lunch at the victim’s house, with the excuse that he needed to borrow it to see his girlfriend.

After failing to return, the vehicle’s owner complained to the police, who found Rouen and Chan trying to sell the bike for $430 to villagers in the Banon district.
