In Brief: Verdict delayed in acid attack case

Phnom Penh Municipal Court again suspended its verdict in the case of Chea Ratha, the former deputy chief of staff of the National Military Police, during a court hearing on Friday. "Our councillors haven't decided yet when it is a right time to read a verdict in the Chea Ratha case," presiding Judge Din Sivuthy said Sunday. Chea Ratha is being tried in connection with a May 2008 incident in which a Phnom Penh woman was severely disfigured in an acid attack. According to court monitors present at Friday's hearing, the judges have ordered fresh investigations into the case.
