THE chief of the Sen Sok district council killed himself with a nylon rope on Monday, a local official said.
District governor Khuong Sreng said the body of Chhun Hak, 46, had been found hanging in his Phnom Penh Thmey commune home.
“We are terribly sorry for the loss of the council chief Chhun Hak, who was my very good friend from childhood,” Khuong Sreng said. “He contributed all of his work for the development of the district.”
Khuong Sreng added that Chhun Hak’s diabetes had recently worsened.
