The National Police said Friday they are on the lookout for Ream Naval Base deputy commander Has Sothea and two other men for their involvement in a shooting incident with a group of Chinese nationals at Koh Rong island earlier this month.
Deputy National Police Chief Chhay Kimkhoeun said the three individuals, two of whom have not been identified by the police, are on the run after they were part of a brawl with 16 Chinese nationals on the island. The only individual the police spokesperson could identify was Has Sothea.
“The court is in charge of this case now,” Chhay Kimkhoeun told VOA Khmer. “And we are seeking to arrest the three individuals who are on the run.”
