Villagers complain of police beatings

Roughly 110 villagers from Takeo province’s Prey Pdao commune, located in Prey Kabas district, protested in front of the National Assembly on Wednesday, accusing military police of beating three villagers during a protest Tuesday. According to a complaint letter signed by 300 people from Trung Phum village, police beat the villagers as they tried to stop construction of a new road that would require the destruction of existing fences. The road is being funded by a private developer. Military police officials have denied the accusations.
