A disabled Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) war veteran sustained serious head injuries after he was attacked by another disabled veteran from the League of Democracy Party (LDP).
Svay Rieng province crime office chief Kim Lay said LDP member Sovan Chansavat, 61, who is disabled in one arm, used a stick to beat CPP member Long Chi, 60.
The incident happened on July 13 in Chik Dey village, Andong Trabek commune, Romeas Hek district, Svay Rieng province.
“At 3:30pm that day, Chansavat used a loudspeaker with the volume very high at his house in order to introduce his party policies for support. Long Chi warned him about the noise as it was disturbing the peace and bothering others.
“Chansavat got angry and used a stick to beat Chi, who is disabled in one leg. He sustained serious head injuries and was rushed to a hospital,” Lay said.
He said Chansavat was arrested and sent to the provincial court on Saturday for further action.
