Defense Lawyer of Thong Sarath will Make the Conclusion Next Month
Phnom Penh: On Friday Tuot Lux, defense lawyer of former Major General Thong Sarath who was accused of assassinating Tycoon Ung Meng Chue outside a fruit shop in 2014, told Swift News that the Phnom Penh Municipal Court finished questioning defendants, witnesses, and already played some video clips and lawyers will make the conclusion on April 6 and April 7, 2017.
A lawyer Tuot Lux said that his client Thong Sarath did not attend the hearing because he was still receiving his medical treatment at the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital.
One of Thong Sarath personal bodyguards was accused of performing the action while other three bodyguards were accused as accomplices to the murder as it was recorded by a security camera outside the shop. Ung Meng Chue was shot six times when he stepped out of his Lexus SUV on November 22, 2014.
