Soldier nabbed for alleged robbery
16 November 2018 | 08:57 ICT
A soldier alleged to be involved in a robbery last week was detained by the Kampong Speu provincial police on Wednesday.

Reports have been sent to the provincial court on Thursday for further legal action, an officer said.

Sam Sak, head of the serious crimes bureau at the provincial police office, identified the suspect as Hat Chhay, 42. “During interrogation, the suspect claimed to be a soldier at the Brigade 70 unit. He will be sent to the Kampong Speu provincial court on Friday,” he said.

Sak told The Post that “no conclusion had been made as yet, as Chhay had not confessed to anything.”
If charged, Chhay is likely to face robbery charges under Articles 37, 94 and 114 of Criminal Code.

Can't be 4 star. The 4 stars are really few compared to the 3 stars and I never seen this one. He is probably 4 stripes
