Appeal Court sets date for Chi Kraeng verdict

A verdict in the case of two villagers from Siem Reap’s Chi Kraeng commune who stood trial last year in Siem Reap provincial court on charges of robbery and causing injury is to be announced on March 3, the Appeal Court said yesterday. The case stems from a March 22, 2009 altercation related to an ongoing land dispute between residents of Chi Kraeng and Anlong Samnor communes, during which police officers fired on a group of protesting residents from both communes. Seven other residents charged in the incident were not summoned to appear yesterday in court. may titthara
