Station owner released

PHNOM Penh Municipal Court has released the owner of a petrol station in Prampi Makara district’s Veal Vong commune that was the site of a fire last month. Nuth Samoeun, 49, the owner of the Socheat garage, has been charged with arson in connection with the case. Investigating Judge Te Sam Ang said yesterday that he had decided to release her so that she could work to settle the 19 compensation requests filed in the aftermath of the blaze. “I have recently decided to release the accused, Mrs Nuth Samoeun, on bail, because it is clear that she would be able to serve the interest of the case by paying compensation to the complainants and reaching compromises,” Te Sam Ang said. Though she did not make a bail payment, she did leave her land title for the property on which the gas station sits with the court, he said.
