VN beautician charged over botched surgery

Phnom Penh Municipal Court has charged an unlicensed Vietnamese beautician with intentional battery after one of his clients accused him of botching a skin-whitening procedure, a police official said on Sunday. Huot Chanyaran, the police chief of Tuol Kork district, said 26-year-old Veng Vuththai, who was arrested last week, had been sent to Prey Sar prison after the court processed him. “We sent him to the court last week, and the court already charged him with intentional battery. He has been sent to Prey Sar prison,” he said. The complaint filed by the victim accused Veng Vuththai of giving her injections of “skin-whitening cream” that had caused her face to become swollen and painful. Court officials could not be reached yesterday.
