Garment worker gets six years for beating

A 20-year-old woman was sentenced by Phnom Penh Municipal Court to six years in prison on Friday for beating and robbing an acquaintance in the capital’s Russey Keo district last year.

In addition to the lengthy jail sentence, El Ror Fi Ah was also fined about $3,750 for attacking fellow garment worker Kim Sorphoan, 19, in a rental room in Russey Keo district, presiding judge Kor Vandy said.

On the evening of September 11, El Ror Fi Ah beat Sorphoan unconscious with a wooden pestle while she was cooking, district police officer Seng Savuth said.

“After the beating, [El Ror Fi Ah] stole the victim’s luxury mobile phone, a necklace, a gold ring and other jewellery before managing to escape,” he said, adding that El Ror Fi Ah was arrested on September 13.

Following the hearing on Friday, El Ror Fi Ah said she planned to appeal.

“The reason why I beat Kim Sorphoan was because I got angry that she put medicines into my dessert to eat. I beat her in order to warn her,” she said.
