Kampong Cham shooter hunted

Authorities yesterday confirmed the identity of a suspect in Thursday’s fatal shooting of Yem Oun, 53, an alleged Human Rights Party activist, in Kampong Cham.

Provincial police chief Chay Kim Son told the Post yesterday that his force was searching for Seang Song, 51.

The police chief also said that the AK-47 rifle used was stolen from police officer Sngorn Sophal, who had been “careless” with his weapon and subsequently received “administrative punishment.”

Over the weekend, the HRP condemned the incident as a “politically motivated murder.”

However, several officials have denied the victim was an HRP member at all.
