Teacher banned from contact with students

The Kampong Chhnang teacher accused of sexually harassing four underage students after complaints were filed on Monday has been suspended from teaching and moved to a position in the district’s education office. Lay Yung, a deputy village chief in Rolea Ba’ier district, said Education Ministry officials met with local authorities and the school director on Wednesday to make a decision about the 35-year-old. Yung added that although the teacher had already been suspended from teaching, the police were not in a position to detain him and would continue to investigate the case. The parents of the alleged victims are seeking compensation and have called for the teacher to be charged.
