In Brief: Court orders delay in Ho Vann Case

Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Friday ordered further investigations into defamation lawsuits filed against Sam Rainsy Party parliamentarian Ho Vann and a local reporter, though the judge did not say when the court would next convene to hear the cases. On Friday, the court questioned Neou Vannarin, a Cambodia Daily reporter, about an April 21 article in which he quoted Ho Vann as questioning the quality of academic degrees awarded by a Vietnamese military institute to 22 senior army officials. During Friday's hearing, Neou Vannarin said that he would not answer any questions without his lawyer present.
