Soldier sorry for shots

A SOLDIER who allegedly tried to shoot Forestry Administration officials in Siem Reap province’s Varin district over the weekend has written a letter of apology in a bid to keep the case out of court. Forestry officials on Sunday accused Rom Sa Eam and Roeun Sarim of firing a K-54 pistol and breaking the side mirror of a Toyota Camry driven by their targets. Rom Sa Eam said he had written the letter of apology on Monday, and that it had included an offer to pay for the broken car mirror. “We have softened our behaviour and apologised to the official for the problem,” he said. Provincial court prosecutor Ty Soveinthal said he did not know about the letter of apology, but that he had ordered the arrest of the soldiers. “I will follow the law,” he said.
