Radsady killing

Two soldiers have been charged by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court with the

February 18 murder of senior Funcinpec advisor Om Radsady. Investigating judge

Ya Sokhan said the court's investigation into the killing was

underway.

Mom Sophann, also known as Ea Naren, was charged on March 14.

Ruos Sophann was charged on March 17. Both men were in commando unit 911. Mom

Sophann's brother, who was also arrested, was freed after police found no

evidence against him.

Sokhan said the investigation into the crime, which

carries a prison term of 20 years, would take at least six months. A trial could

take place if the investigation finished before that.

Mom Sophann

apparently confessed to the killing after ballistic tests indicated that his

pistol was the one used. Other evidence is a Honda AX-1 motorcycle, apparently

the getaway vehicle, and a mobile phone.
