Police officials accused of forging documents

A woman in the capital filed a lawsuit with the municipal court yesterday, accusing four police officials of forging official documents last year after she was physically attacked outside her home in the Russei Keo district.

Defence attorney Kouy Thunna said his client Soeu Halim was attacked in November last year by a male neighbour, but when she filed a complaint with local authorities, the paperwork was filled out incorrectly, identifying her as a man and her assailant as a woman.

His client’s lawsuit accuses Phnom Penh municipal deputy police commissioner Pol Pithey, Russei Keo police chief Som Bunny, Russei Keo deputy police chief Nuon Samuth and Russei Keo police officer Thorn Then of forgery.

Soeu Halim, who claimed the forgery was carried out intentionally, is seeking US$50,000 in compensation.
