Chief sues official for assault at loud party

A police chief is suing a military police official for violence and property damage, after a karaoke party ended badly on Friday, commune authorities in the capital’s Meanchey district said yesterday.

Lor Linno, police chief of Chak Angre Krom commune, said that 30-year-old National Military Police officer Srey Ratanak was being sued by his neighbour Chhorng Borin, 43, the deputy police chief of Chak Angre Leu commune.

Lor Linno said that Srey Ratanak was hosting a party at his house and when neighbours, including Chhorng Borin, asked that the party be conducted more quietly, an intoxicated Srey Ratanak cursed them, beat Chhorng Borin and destroyed objects in his house, Lor Linno said.

The two men have been embroiled in a dispute over the boundaries of their respective properties, which is now under investigation by district police, he added.
