Killer appeals robbery verdict

A former military police officer found guilty of murdering two policemen in 2011 appealed a related robbery conviction yesterday.

Nheav Thoeun filed his appeal last year after being sentenced to three years in prison for what Court of Appeal judge Phlang Sophal described yesterday as a “violent” robbery.

The court heard how Thoeun had robbed a South Korean tourist on Russian Boulevard in the capital in the early hours of July 27, 2011.

“I was only the victim in this case,” Thoeun said.

Thoeun appealed his murder convictions in 2011, but the verdicts stood and he was sentenced to 18 years in prison. A decision on the robbery conviction will be made on March 14.
