Naval officer in child assault case

A high-ranking navy official in Preah Sihanouk province could be under investigation after he was accused of striking two educators and a 10-year-old boy because he believed the boy scared his daughter using a turtle, officials said Monday. The accused, General Koe Monysoka, is also deputy commander at the Ream Naval Base, according to Preah Sihanouk provincial Governor Sboang Sarath, who said he has asked police to investigate the allegations. “I will not allow the perpetrator to live with impunity,” he said. Chan Samphors, an administrator at a local school who claims to have been beaten in the attack, said: “He used his power to torture the children and the teacher in the classroom. We need justice and some compensation.”
