Bail follows crash at PM’s house

A woman alleged to have swerved her BMW SUV into two bodyguards outside Prime Minister Hun Sen’s home was released on bail yesterday, the deputy chief of Phnom Penh’s traffic police said.

Ung Kol Sanik, 26, allegedly lost control of her vehicle early on Wednesday morning before injuring bodyguards Yin Chantho and Seung Socheath. She was found to have a blood-alcohol content twice the legal limit.

“The court decided to release her on bail and put her under court supervision,” deputy traffic police chief Sim Vannsy said, adding that Sanik agreed to pay compensation to the guards.
