Tough sentence: Man gets 2 years for fake plates

A man was sentenced to two years in prison yesterday for using a fake licence plate on his motorbike.

Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge You Bunna said yesterday that Sok Saroath, 27, would serve time after using a fake number plate on his 2013 Honda Scoopy, a model that can cost more than $1,800.

“He has money to buy a luxury motorbike to ride, but he has no money to get a legal number plate for it,” Bunna said yesterday, questioning Saroath’s judgment. “[So] he has produced a fake number plate for it. He is sentenced to two years,” he added.

Bunna said Saroath had been arrested in November when police stopped him at a routine checkpoint and noticed something amiss with his plates. Prosecutors charged him under the penal code with using a fake motorbike plate.
