Conflict Rival On Journalist Life Threat Seeks To End Case

Journalist's other party in life threat against him seeks to end his case.

Sralanh Khmer or Love Khmer newspaper editor You Saravudh and Prime Minister Hun Sen's nephew Hun To are trying to end their conflict out of court.

There is not evidence whether Mr. You will withdraw his lawsuit or not, alleges his lawyer.

Mr. Hun To was reported threatening Mr. You verbally and via telephone of intent to kill, after Mr. You publishes an article saying Mr. Hun To is involved in land grabbing in Mondulkiri province, charges that Mr. Hun To denies again and again.

Mr. You Saravudh's lawyer Chhith Sarith speaks with Mr. Hun To by telephone saying that both parties allege that they want reconcilialion and an apology at the court.

The lawyer did not specify whether or not the apology has something to do with the article published in the Love Khmer newspaper, or charges that Mr. Hun To threatened to kill his client
