The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday summoned former Ponsang commune chief Dy Sariem for questioning over her complaint accusing deputy police chief of 7 Makara district, Ou Pov, of “intentional assault”.
Sariem had accused Pov and his companions of attacking her and her husband on June 16 in Preaek Pnov district, Phnom Penh.
She claimed she and her husband were injured on the body, face and head and that they were attacked over a commission on a land deal.
Sariem said she asked the court for justice and demanded $50,000 in compensation.
“After he attacked my husband and me, Pov said: ‘You can file a complaint against me. I am not afraid of you’,” she said.
According to the complaint, the accident happened at 10am on June 16. Sariem claimed that Pov demanded three per cent of the deal. When she declined, she said that Pov and his group threatened the couple at home and other places.
Investigating Judge Em Vannak did not say when Pov would be summoned to court. Pov could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.
