Prosecutors

questioned Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Ho Vann at Phnom Penh Municipal

Court on Friday, in relation to a defamation lawsuit brought by 22

military officers who have accused him of denigrating the quality of

the degrees awarded to them by a Vietnamese military academy. Ho Vann

denies making the assertion, claiming that the news outlet that

initially reported the alleged statement had issued a correction that

could help to resolve the dispute. "If the prosecutor understands my

explanation, the plaintiffs will understand as well," he said. The

court's deputy prosecutor, Sok Roeun, declined comment Sunday, saying

that he could not discuss the court's decision beforehand.
