Prison release: Court gives bail in land mine case

Prison release
A Banteay Meanchey man charged last month with placing an explosive device in a public place was released on bail after spending nearly three weeks in prison.  “I still insist that I did not have any intention of killing anyone,” Kim Sath, 42, said following his release on Tuesday morning.  Kim Sath was arrested on February 13 after he and his wife unearthed a piece of unexploded ordnance, which he placed beneath a tree to await removal by authorities. His release followed an appearance by his wife at the court for questioning connected with his case. Soum Chankea, provincial coordinator for local rights group Adhoc, welcomed the release, but regretted that the court detained him without clearly investigating the case. Long Cheap, deputy provincial prosecutor, declined to comment yesterday.
