The wife of slain investigative journalist Hang Serei Odom will appeal to the Ministry of Justice and the Appeal Court over the Ratanakkiri Provincial Courtís decision to drop the charges against a military police officer and his wife who were allegedly involved in the journalistís murder, a lawyer said Sunday. Hang Serei Odom, 42, a reporter for the Virakchun Khmer Daily, was found hacked to death and stuffed in the trunk of his car in OíChum district on September 11 last year. In the months before his murder, he had written about officials involved in the illegal timber trade.
