In Brief: Heng Pov trial delayed again

The trial of former

Phnom Penh police chief Heng Pov, which was expected to be held

Thursday, was postponed due to a scheduling conflict, with the Phnom

Penh Municipal Court busy preparing for the reappointments of judges

and prosecutors. It was the second time in two weeks a hearing on

charges of illegal detention and interrogation against the former top

cop has been delayed. Heng Pov, who while in power was much feared in

his role, is currently serving a total of 58 years in prison on charges

including murder and kidnapping.
