Sexual harassment: Court probes groping case

A waitress in Banteay Meanchey province who filed a complaint earlier this month against two customers she accused of groping her has been called for further questioning at the provincial court.

Hi Thavy, 25, said yesterday that she had been summoned to the court for further questioning on December 6. “Although I am so afraid that I have fled to live in a safe place, I am ready to answer before the court,” she told the Post.

Hi Thavy had accused an official with the Cambodian Mine Action Centre and a friend of his of sexual harassment after they allegedly groped her at a restaurant in the province’s Sisophon district. “I want the court to find justice for me by convicting them,” she said. “I want compensation and I want them sent to jail,” she added.

She said the two men and others at their table forced her to drink with them and then the two accused men groped her in front of other customers, leaving her feeling deeply ashamed. They started by wrapping their arms around her waist, then despite her attempts to stop them began groping her body, she said.
