A fourth former Khmer Rouge soldier has been arrested and charged for his role in the 1996 kidnapping and killing of British mine clearer Christopher Howes. Former Khmer Rouge fighter Sin Dorn was charged on May 6 with premeditated murder over the deaths of Howes and his Cambodian translator, Huon Huot. Dorn was also charged with illegal confinement of Howes and his translator and with being a member of rebel forces, investigating judge Ke Sakhan said. Authorities arrested Dorn on May 4 in the remote northern outpost of Anlong Veng, the Khmer Rouge’s final stronghold, he said. In November, three other former communist rebels, including Khem Ngun, Loch Mao, and Cheap Chet, were arrested and received the same charges over the deaths of Howes and Huot.
