More jail for Heng Pov

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court sentenced former Phnom Penh police chief Heng Pov

to seven years jail on March 23 for locking a woman in a cage for more than two months.

The woman was arrested in 2005 for allegedly trying to bribe court officials to release

her brother, a robbery suspect. According to local media she told the court she was

held for 70 days after a confession was forced out of her. The case was the second

of several against Heng Pov, who is already serving an 18-year prison sentence for

the 2003 murder of municipal court judge Sok Sethamony.
