AN armed robber was sentenced to five years in prison yesterday after threatening a Phnom Penh motodop with a pistol last year.
Vin Ny, aged 36, was arrested on August 14 last year in Phnom Penh Thmey commune in Russei Keo district after he robbed the driver the day.
“He has used a pistol and pointed it at the victim while he was riding behind him, and successfully robbed him. He also used the illegal gun in his robbery activities,” said presiding judge Suos Sam Ath.
“So the court has decided to sentence him to five years in jail and to pay one million riels in compensation for the victim,” he added.
Vin Ny declined to comment on his verdict and sentence when asked by the Phnom Penh Post yesterday.
