Businessman from China accused of raping his maid

Police arrested a Chinese businessman accused of raping his live-in housekeeper and cook early yesterday morning in Boeng Trabek commune in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district, and plan to send him to the municipal court for official charges today, an official said yesterday.

Mom Sitha, chief of the Foreign Police Office of the Phnom Penh Municipal Police, said Chinese national Ching Chiang Lin, 36 – the director of Ching Chiang Bi Shi Group – was picked up by Chamkarmon district police yesterday morning at his company’s office, located in the same building as his living quarters, after police received the allegations of rape from his employee, who worked as a cook and cleaner for his company, and who lived in Ching’s house.

“He got drugs and had just come from drinking at a nightclub on Saturday around midnight,” Sitha said. “When he arrived at his rental house, he asked his cook to open the door so he could enter the house. After that, he brought her inside of his personal room, and forcibly raped her.”

“After the rape, the victim went to file her complaint at the Chamkarmon district police, and [Ching] was later arrested based on the victim’s complaint this Sunday morning,” he added.

According to Sitha, Ching confessed to the allegations during questioning at the police station, blaming his actions on excessive drunkenness.

An official at the Chinese embassy who hung up without providing his name said he had not yet heard of Ching’s case.

Ching is being detained at the Foreign Police Office until he is sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for charges, and could not be reached for comment regarding the accusations yesterday.
