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.
