Villagers want monk out

About 100 people from Kandal’s Ponhea Leu district put their thumbprints on a document calling for a 33-year-old monk from the Dambok Meanleak pagoda to be defrocked after he allegedly had an affair with a woman in the area and then beat up two other monks he accused of flirting with her.

Dambok Meanleak deputy village chief Pich Him said the monk, Heoun Hak, attacked two visiting monks from Kampong Speu’s Kong Pisey district.

“The jealous monk Heoun Hak beat two Buddhis monks after one of the monks tried to flirt with his mistress,” the deputy village chief. He identified the two monks who were attacked as 70-year-old Khieu Kan and 19-year-old Nhel Bora.
