Court Calls Kep Policeman in Land Case

A police official from the coastal town of Kep will answer questions in court Wednesday over his alleged role in a land dispute.

Pring Pov, whom rights groups say was tortured and confined in poor conditions after refusing to give land to a senior minister, said Monday he had been called in to court Wednesday.

The Asian Human Rights Commission has said Pring Pov had been forced to give land to then princess Marie Ranariddh, who is now divorced from Prince Norodom Ranariddh.

The Rights Commission has called for an investigation into the treatment of Pring Pov in police custody.
