Teacher pays out after assaulting students

A TEACHER has apologised and paid compensation to two seven-year-old students who he allegedly attacked at a primary school in Stung Treng province’s Stung Treng district on Friday. Peng Chanthon, the mother of one of the students, said the teacher had paid 100,000 riels (about US$24.75) in compensation to her son, and 150,000 riels to another student. Chea Sophal, the principal of the school, said the teacher had attacked and seriously injured the students because they were “stubborn” and suspected of stealing bicycles. He said, however, that regardless of the students’ misdemeanors, it was illegal for the teacher to use violence.
