In Brief: Police official called to court

Phnom Penh Municipal Court issued a letter on Friday summonsing Chan Saroeun, deputy chief of staff at the Municipal Police Department, to appear in court on Wednesday in connection with a traffic accident that killed one man. Witnesses said Chan Saroeun was driving his car in Prampi Makara district while intoxicated last Tuesday at around 7:30pm and ran off the road, striking and killing 41-year-old Chan Lonh, a security guard at Atlantic Restaurant. Chan Saroeun allegedly fled the scene, in the process crashing into another car at a traffic light near Depo market. Police subsequently took him into custody, but he was released shortly afterward. Chan Lonh's wife appeared at the Municipal Court on Friday to file a complaint seeking US$20,000 in compensation from Chan Saroeun.
