Child-rape charge laid

KAMPONG Chhnang provincial court has charged a 70-year-old man with raping a 4-year-old girl on four separate occasions at his home in Boribo district, officials said yesterday. Prak Sao Ny, the provincial anti-human trafficking police chief, said yesterday that police had arrested the suspect, Srey Maing, on Tuesday at his home and held him overnight after the alleged victim’s parents filed a complaint against him. He was sent to the court and charged on Wednesday. Prak Sao Ny said that after the first attack, the girl reported it to her mother, but that her mother did not believe her, thinking Srey Maing was a good neighbour. The mother only took the girl’s claims seriously after she caught Srey Maing trying to rape her, Prak Sao Ny said. Prosecutor Penh Vibol said Srey Maing had been charged under the Law on Aggravating Circumstances for Felonies and faces 15 to 20 years in prison if guilty.
