Tycoon in legal battle with ex-TV presenter seeks delay in proceedings

Heng Sear, a businessman with the honorific Oknha who is now locked in counter suits with former TV presenter Mean Pich Rita over attempted rape, has requested the court to delay investigation procedure for medical reasons.

In his letter dated May 13 to the court's investigating judge, Sear said he could not appear at the court for questioning as he was still receiving intensive care at a hospital in Phnom Penh.

“When my conditions get better, I will appear to testify without delay,” he said.

Oknha Heng Sear has sued Pich Rita for theft with aggravating circumstances while she filed a counter suit against him for attempted rape in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on May 4. She was placed in pre-trial detention on May 11.

According to the detention warrant issued by Investigating Judge Koy Sao dated May 11, Pich Rita had allegedly used a knife to attack Sear on two occasions and had stolen his iPhone 12 on May 4 in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.

The former Miss Grand Cambodia contestant was granted bail on May 13.
