Road Regulations: Publisher sentenced for car plate

Road Regulations
THE publisher of a monthly newspaper in Kampong Thom province confessed in court to using an illegal press licence plate yesterday, prompting judges to hand him a two-year prison sentence, 23 months of which were suspended.

Horn Dara Huol, the 47-year-old publisher of the monthly Chhanteak Kuon newspaper, was arrested on July 20 in Baray district, and police at the time accused him of trying to extort money from wood vendors.

He faced between two and five years in prison and a fine of up to 10 million riels (US$2,383).

Kampong Thom provincial court president Khorn Sokol said Horn Dara Huol, who was not asked to pay a fine, was given a suspended sentence “because he confessed that he really used a fake number plate”.
