Suspects in armed force detained

Seven people were arrested yesterday on suspicion of forming an illegal armed force that military police officials said went by the name Sovannaphumi Army.

Ya Kim Y, deputy commander of the Phnom Penh Military Police, said the suspects were arrested yesterday at two different locations in the Tuol Kork and Dangkor districts of Phnom Penh.

The arrests were made after Phnom Penh Municipal Court deputy prosecutor Sok Roeun issued warrants in the case.

“These people were involved with the establishment of an illegal armed forces movement in Cambodia,” he said.

Ya Kim Y added that the suspects were now being detained at Military Police headquarters in Phnom Penh for further questioning and interrogation before being sent to court to face charges.

“They are now being detained under the strict control of the military police forces,” he said.

“They will be sent to the court for their charges after the completion of their interrogations and investigations.”

Phnom Penh Municipal Court deputy prosecutor Sok Roeun declined yesterday to comment about the arrests of the seven suspects or to provide additional details about the case.
