A deputy district governor and his alleged lover were sent to Battambang Provincial Court yesterday over accusations they had been engaged in an adulterous affair, Komrieng district police chief Chhim Kimhong said.
Kimhong said the adultery complaint had been filed against Deputy District Governor Soung Keo and Heng Siny by Siny’s husband, Hong Pov, who discovered the couple in a room at his and Siny’s shared home — with the door bolted from the inside.
“After that, the husband told me, and I informed him not to use violence. Then the police arrived and arrested them,” Kimhong said.
According to Kimhong, both defendants maintained their innocence, with Siny saying she and Pov shared a house, but had filed for divorce and were yet to receive the final paperwork.
