No Lawyers, no trial for tycoon’s parents

The trial of fugitive tycoon Thong Sarath’s parents was delayed yesterday after the defendants’ lawyers failed to turn up to Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

Thong Chamroeun, 63, also known as Tang Sok, and Keo Sary, 55, are charged along with their son with illegally possessing 11 rifles.

Police found the weapons while investigating the assassination of Shimmex Group owner Ung Meng Cheu on November 22, allegedly masterminded by Sarath, who has fled the country.

Chamroeun and Sary were caught trying to cross the border while out on bail in February.
