Assault complaint filed

A WOMAN in Preah Sihanouk province has lodged a complaint with provincial military police against a naval officer who she says attacked her 10-year-old son and two local teachers.

Workers at the International Home of English School said Sunday that General Koe Monysoka, deputy commander at the Ream Naval Base, attacked the student and teachers on Friday because he believed the 10-year-old had frightened his daughter using a turtle.

In her letter of complaint, Huon Maly called for Koe Monysoka’s resignation, saying her son had suffered injuries to his head and is now afraid to go to school.

Chan Chamroeun, Adhoc’s provincial monitor, described the alleged attack as “brutal” and said Adhoc would monitor the situation. “We are trying to contact the boy’s family for details to lodge a complaint to the provincial court for further investigation.”
