Heng Pov conviction upheld

The Supreme Court yesterday upheld a conviction against former Phnom Penh Police chief Heng Pov and three other men for the attempted murder of Military Police chief General Sao Sokha in 2003.

Charges against a fifth accused, Prum Sorphearith, 45, were dismissed.

Pov, 57, former Minor Crimes Department deputy police chief Ly Rasy, 45, former Serious Crimes Department deputy chief Hang Vuthy, 44, and younger brother of Vuthy and former penal officer Hang Vutha, 43, were appealing against an appeal court’s sentence in December 2010.
