Son of top cop in Koh Kong accused in beating

A Siem Reap man has filed a complaint with the provincial court and the rights group Adhoc in Koh Kong alleging his former brother-in-law – a police officer and the son of the provincial police chief – beat him unconscious in the street last week.

According to the complaint, Lim Socheat, 32, was attending the Sea Festival in Khemarak Phumin town on December 10 when police officer Chan Ravya approached him with about six others and allegedly attacked him.

“I do not know the reason I was beaten. I have filed a complaint with the court, but what is difficult is seeking witnesses, because the perpetrators are powerful,” he said. Ravya could not be reached yesterday.

His father, provincial police chief Sam Khitvean, said he would take the complaint seriously, and “will try to seek the truth”.

Provincial court prosecutor Bo Bunheang likewise promised to look into the matter.
