Sam Bith

A Phnom Penh Municipal court judge set December 12 as the trial date for former Khmer

Rouge commander Sam Bith. He is accused of involvement in a 1994 train ambush in

Kampot which left 13 Cambodians dead. Three foreign tourists were also kidnapped

and later killed. Bith was arrested in May 2002. Among the charges is that of premeditated

murder. His lawyer, Ka Savuth, was optimistic his client would go free, as he claimed

he was not present during the attack.
