Tycoon’s sons guilty; one jailed

The two sons of tycoon Duong Ngiep, accused of beating a man during an altercation at a restaurant, were found guilty by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday.

The older son – Duong Chhay, 24 – was convicted of illegally possessing weapons, assault and destruction of property, and sentenced to three and a half years in prison, judge Seng Neang said.

Chhay was ordered to pay $10,000 in compensation to the owner of the Chamkarmon  district restaurant and fined $1,750.

Chhay’s brother, Kimlong, 17, was handed a much more lenient sentence. He  was found guilty of only the illegal weapon charge, and handed a five-month suspended sentence and a $125 fine, Neang said.

“The court has found that Chhay Kimlong did not beat the victim or damage private property, but he was found with an AK-47 rifle in his car.”

Neang added that Ly Rayuth, 20, Kimlong’s bodyguard, was released because he was innocent of the crime.
