Kampong Cham Provincial Court has released a Kratie provincial military officer on bail after he was charged for allegedly threatening to shoot two men at an internet cafe on March 18.

Court spokesman Chum Narann today said that the son of the Kratie provincial military police commander was freed on bail at the beginning of this month, but could not remember the exact date.

Huot Vuthy, provincial court prosecutor, declined to comment today, but identified the accused as Major San Sokhom, 28, who was charged on March 26 with intentional violence with aggravating circumstances, threatening to use a weapon and illegal possession of a weapon.

Investigating Judge Nouv Yarath, who is also the Kampong Cham Provincial Court director, could not be reached for comment today.

On March 23, two men filed a complaint against Maj Sokhom, claiming that he threatened and assaulted them as they were playing an online game at an Internet café in the province’s Kampong Cham city.

According to the complaint, Maj Sokhom pulled 25-year-old Vann Chan Aktichakpanha and 28-year-old Ye Chenda from their seats, took them to his car and pointed his gun at them.
