Police brutality claim

A young man has complained he was handcuffed and beaten by officers in Kampong Chhnang during a festival last month. Sam Chankea, Adhoc’s provincial coordinator, said the complaint was filed with the district police chief on Monday. Chhuth Chhoen, 22, said he had been celebrating a traditional ceremony in Spar commune in Boribor district. He was arrested at a party and allegedly beaten during an overnight stay in the police station. Hem Dara, Chief of the Spar Commune Police, denied the accusation and claimed that Chhuth Chhoeun was a trouble-causing gangster.
