HUSBAND CATCHES CHEATING WIFE

An adulterous wife was finally caught out by her husband when he found her with another man and filed a complaint to the police. Police have detained the cheating wife and her lover, having caught them in the act at a guesthouse in Svay Reing district, Svay Reing province. The husband, Lay Kong, 38, a motorbike mechanic, told police he had been happily married to his wife Loeung Dip, 34, for 12 years. The couple have three children. He said in recent months he became suspicious as she began wearing nice dresses and makeup, and he heard rumors from neighbors that she was having an affair. He said he would divorce her and press charges under the Kingdom's adultery law, under which extramarital sex is illegal.
