Trio charged in gang rape of waitress

Attack on woman

Three students were charged yesterday with the gang rape of a 29-year-old waitress in Phnom Penh following their arrest last Wednesday.

The students – Riem Mono, 18; Put Keara, 24; and Kim Phnanha, 22 – were having a late dinner and drinks at a restaurant on National Road 1 on Wednesday where the 29-year-old victim was working as a waitress.

According to a Meanchey police officer who wished to remain anonymous, the three men allegedly invited the waitress to come dancing with them but instead drove her to a nearby farm where they each raped her twice, even after being warned she was living with HIV/AIDS. After-wards, they left her there.

The victim was able to walk to file a report at 3am on Thursday. The suspects were arrested that day and are now in Prey Sar prison.

Neither the suspects nor their defence lawyer could be reached for comment yesterday regarding the accusations.
