Mother severely beaten for late debt repayment
A woman was hospitalised in Kampong Cham province on Monday after another woman allegedly beat her for failing to repay a debt of about US$50. The victim said that when she had told the suspect that she was unable to immediately repay the full amount with interest, the suspect had tried to force her to work as a domestic aid, but the victim declined because she had a 1-year-old child to look after. The victim claims that the incensed woman grabbed her by the hair and beat her head against the wall, before picking up and throwing the infant against the wall. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
