10-year sentence upheld in acid case
( 12-June-2013 by The Phnom Penh Post )
The Appeal Court upheld a 10-year prison sentence handed to a man convicted last year of dousing a woman with acid, blinding her in one eye.
“The court made the decision to uphold the ruling, and if the perpetrator is unsatisfied, he can appeal to the highest court within the law,” Appeal Court Judge Nhoung Thol said. In June last year, 22-year-old Pov Kolab was sentenced to a decade in prison and fined $5,000 by the Kampong Cham Provincial Court for his attack on Kong Touch, 52.
