Three jailed for kidnap

PHNOM Penh Municipal Court yesterday sentenced three men to 15 years jail for kidnapping and detaining a 5-year-old boy last year, according to a verdict read out by Judge Duch Kimsorn. The three men, who demanded US$4,000 ransom for the return of the child, were arrested in November last year in Kampong Cham province. During hearings the men denied the charges. The trio’s defence lawyer Uk Vandeth yesterday decribed the verdict as “unacceptable”, and said he hoped his clients would appeal.
