PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Stung Treng military police officers have released a Facebook user who was arrested on a defamation charge for criticizing a military police chief on his Facebook page.
Cheth Sovichea, a staff member for the Telephone Company in Stung Treng province, was arrested on Wednesday, after he posted a message criticizing military police commander, Ieng Vandy.
He was released that same day after he signed a letter of fault confessing to the defamation.
Before he was arrested, Cheth Sovichea posted on his Facebook page along with a photo of Ieng Vandy, "Come to take money, and use inappropriate words … I wouldn't expect that out of him [Ieng Vandy] with his high position, but his words are not even equal to dirt."
