Tiger's head trial to reopen today

The trial of five men accused of planting bombs in the capital is set to reopen today, but a verdict may not be reached during the session, Phnom Penh Municipal Court Judge Chhay Kong said. “It depends on the time we will have. Before we make the final decision we have to analyse all the evidence and the prosecutor and defence lawyers’ conclusions,” he said. The defendants, alleged members of the Khmer National Unity Front, also known as the Tiger Liberation Movement, were charged in connection to the planting of bombs in 2007 and earlier this year.
