In Brief: MP appears in court over son's killing

Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Yont Tharo presented himself at court on Monday in connection with the death of his son, who was shot dead in a road altercation in August. According to his lawyer, Yont Tharo had requested the prosecutor to arrest the suspect and take legal action against him and demanded compensation of US$160,000. Opposition MPs sent a letter on September 1 to Minister of Interior Sar Kheng requesting that those responsible for killing Yont Thauron, a 25-year-old military policeman, be arrested.
