Court Upholds Guilty Verdict for Governor in Shooting Case
The Cambodian Court of Appeals on Monday upheld a guilty verdict for a former city governor accused of firing into a crowd of protesters last year. Chhouk Bandith, former governor of Bavet town, Svay Rieng province, remains at large, despite being found guilty of the shooting. Rights groups say his powerful connections have kept him out of prison, despite the injuries to three women during the February 2012 shooting at a demonstration of garment factory workers.
