Shooting: Police arrest soldier over forest death

Shooting
Asoldier accused of shooting a villager who was transporting timber in Oddar Meanchey’s Anlong Veng district was sent to court by district officials on Thursday to face a murder charge. The suspect was identified as Seng Ho, 53, a soldier belonging to Brigade 5 in Anlong Veng. It is alleged that he asked for 20,000 riels (about US$4.80) from the victim, Yath Yom, and opened fire when the man did not pay. The victim later died in a Siem Reap hospital. Nguon Rithy, Anlong Veng district military police chief, said the suspect was arrested on Wednesday in Trapaing Prasat district’s Pha’av commune. “We have arranged the documents and lawsuit already, and sent both along with the suspect to court on Thursday charged with intentional murder,” he said.
