Actress to file charges

ACTRESS Sven Socheata is moving forward with an official complaint against the military officials who shot her during a scuffle at a film crew party in Siem Reap province last week, rights workers said. Sous Narin, provincial coordinator for rights group Adhoc, said the actress did not drop her charges as previously reported, a move she had proposed if the police dropped their own charges against her friends. Ngem Sila, deputy military police chief for Siem Reap, said a military police inspection team was dispatched yesterday to probe the case.
