Monk, woman ‘in bed’

A 31-year-old monk was arrested and defrocked in Kampong Cham province by Tbong Khmom district police on Tuesday after being accused of having sexual relations with the wife of a local man.

Tbong Khmom district police chief Heang Hort said yesterday the defrocked monk had been caught at the home of Rotha Sithy after the man had spotted him in bed with his wife and made a complaint to the authorities.

Taing Meng Chhorn was handed to the Mong-borei pagoda’s chief monk for punishment before being sent to court.

Kampong Cham provincial court prosecutor Huot Vuthy said the plaintiff had withdrawn his complaint because he still loved his wife.
