Mondulkiricourt queries rights monitor

Officials at Mondulkiri provincial court on Thursday questioned an investigator for the rights group Adhoc about the alleged beating of three boys by a police official, and accused him of “misreporting” aspects the case, Adhoc said. Sam Sarin, Adhoc’s provincial coordinator in Mondulkiri, said the boys’ parents lodged a complaint accusing police of beating the boys after they were arrested on suspicion of stealing US$1,500. Adhoc investigator Koul Midi was summoned after the complaint was lodged. “Koul Midi told me after the meeting with the court prosecutor that they blamed the organisation for misreporting the age of the boys,” he said. Two of the three boys – who Adhoc says are 13, and officials say are 16 – are serving pretrial detention. The third was released without charge.
