Rights group urges action on Kampot rape

HUMAN rights activists yesterday urged authorities to take action in the case of an 11-year-old girl who was allegedly raped by her uncle in Kampot province on Friday. The victim’s father said he filed a complaint with authorities that day, requesting 20 million riels (US$4,703) in compensation and “justice” for his daughter. Shim Sorphea, a project officer for the rights group Adhoc, said she had urged authorities to act because most rape cases ended in compensation settlements. “We think the victims will not get justice if the suspects are not sentenced,” she said.
