THE Thai engineer accused of stealing the flight schedule of fugitive Thai former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra appeared for questioning at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday, National Police Deputy Commissioner Sok Phal said. The 31-year-old Siwarak Chotipong, an employee of Cambodia Air Traffic Services Co, was arrested in the midst of the diplomatic row over Thaksin’s visit to Cambodia last week. He is currently being held in pretrial detention at Prey Sar prison. “Today, the court called him for questioning, and our police force just escorted him from the jail to the court,” Sok Phal said. Chang Sinat, the investigating judge in the case, declined to comment on a potential trial date. “I cannot say when the court will proceed with the trial because this is a confidential investigation and it has not yet finished,” she said.
