Sihanoukville prisoner dies before court date

AN alleged rapist died at Preah Sihanouk provincial hospital on Monday after suffering a stroke, officials said. Va Chan, 50, a coffee seller at Sihanoukville’s Ochhuteal beach, had been held at the provincial prison since his arrest in March, and was awaiting a court hearing scheduled for August 25. “We feel sorry for his death because we have tried our best to save him. There was no torture or abuse on him,” said Vun Nguon, deputy director of the provincial prison. Bun Narith, a coordinator for rights group Licadho, said yesterday that the group would investigate.
