No charges for six over man’s death

The six men suspected over the fatal shooting and beating of a 24-year-old man in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district on early Monday morning were returned home after questioning, according to police, who insist the investigation will continue until the gunman behind the fatal shot is found.

The men, all security guards from a venue called City Club, had been in a verbal altercation with the victim, Kong Socheat, shortly before he was shot in the head at about 4am, said local police in Stung Meanchey commune on Monday.

Choun Narin, deputy police chief of the Phnom Penh Municipality, told the Post yesterday that the six men had returned home after they were thoroughly questioned on Monday evening.

“We just called them for questioning and allowed them back home afterwards, and they were not charged either,” he said.

“However, this case is under investigation. We will not allow criminals to live outside the law.”
