News Briefs: Princess wants $6m

Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, Minister of Culture and Fine Arts and daughter of King

Sihanouk, is to pursue her case against the Bangkok Post newspaper, which she successfully

sued for libel in July this year. The princess, who was awarded Baht 4,000,000 in

damages, is now pursuing the full $6 million she originally requested. The princess'

lawyers filled an appeal in September this year. The case centers on a Bangkok Post

editorial published in 2000, which claimed the Princess was involved in drug smuggling.
