Victim to file complaint against Mondulkiri hospital

A man injured by a private company's security guard in Mondulkiri's Pech Chreada district on Saturday was sent to Phnom Penh yesterday for treatment as he pledged to file complaints with the government against the provincial hospital for failing to treat him.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tek Ngiem was brought to the capital yesterday morning by local rights group Adhoc.

Speaking to reporters, Ngiem said provincial medical staff had discharged him on Tuesday afternoon without removing pieces of rock that have been lodged beneath his skin since a security guard working for LKL Company allegedly opened fire on a rock he was sitting on.

"They scanned and found the pieces and the doctor told me that my life will be in danger if the pieces are not taken out.… Besides that they did nothing," he said.

Ny Chakrya of Adhoc said the failure to treat Ngiem was "inhumane" and "violated medical professional ethics".

But Sie Sok Mieng, director of Mondulkiri provincial referral hospital, denied the allegations.

"He wanted us to operate but we did not find pieces in his body," he said.

Ngiem was sent to the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital yesterday.
