An 18-year-old construction worker Chhun Koy was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Thursday after he was arrested the day before in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district for posting nude pictures of his ex-girlfriend on Facebook.
Police were alerted to Kuy after the victim filed a complaint accusing him of posting the pictures, the municipal police’s Serious Crimes Bureau chief Eng Sorphea said.
Once the bureau received the complaint, it requested municipal police chief Sar Thet to arrest Koy.
According to the complaint, the victim said she and Koy had engaged in a romantic relationship that spawned from their conversations on Facebook.
After Koy allegedly seduced her, he requested that the victim send nude photos of herself to prove her love for him, and she agreed.
The complaint said that before this year’s Khmer New Year holiday in April, she attempted to break up with Kuy, who became angry and posted the photos in retaliation.
Sorphea said Koy was from O’Ampil village, Tuol Pongro commune, Malai district, Banteay Meanchey province.
