Cop told to say sorry for punch

A deputy provincial police chief in Kep is being asked to apologise to a subordinate whom he allegedly punched at the scene of a motorbike accident last week.

Kep provincial police captain Tuy Tin filed an internal complaint against deputy chief Nhem Khorn for hitting him as he was assisting an unconscious accident victim – an off-duty police officer – in front of the police station.

“Police officers are the people who help eliminate violence,” Tin said. “I would like the general commissioner of the National Police not to allow such leaders to use violence against subordinates like this.”

The blow allegedly occurred after an 8pm motorbike accident in front of the provincial police station. Tin began giving first aid to the victim, at which point Khorn stormed out of the station, saying the treatment was outside Tin’s job description, and then punched him, Tin said.

Kep police chief Oueng Sam Ol said he has asked Khorn to apologise. No disciplinary action will be taken against Khorn, who could not be reached.
