KR leader at Appeals Court

Murder charges against former Khmer Rouge commander Sam Bith will be reviewed by

the Appeals Court March 29.

Bith was arrested in 2002 for his role in a 1994 train ambush in Kampot that left

at least 16 Cambodians and three foreigners dead. In 2002, the Phnom Penh municipal

court sentenced Bith to life imprisonment. He has been held at Prey Sar prison since.

Controversy over the attack resurfaced in February when the Supreme Court upheld

charges of terrorism against another KR commander, Chhouk Rin, who is still hiding

from police.
