Trial involves military police chief

A case against a military police official in Ratanakkiri is taking shape after he was involved in an accident that left a villager in a wheelchair.

Fan Sok, 45, filed a complaint against Khen Muth, chief of military police in Veun Sai district, in early September for $6,000 in medical com­pensation, according to Mom Vanda, deputy provincial prosecutor in Ratanakkiri.

The court sent notices to three eyewitnesses yesterday to testify.

According to a statement by human rights group Adhoc, the accident occurred on July 28 while Sok was riding his motorbike and Muth’s car hit him, breaking his calf in several places.
