RAPED WOMAN ARRESTED BY POLICE
Chhuon Savan, 25, has been detained by the police on the charge of attempted murder of Ly Mao in what local villagers have described as an unlawful arrest in Lvea village, Svay Rumpea commune, Kampong Laeng district, Kampong Chhnang province. Chhuon Savan's neighbours have said that the young woman was raped by Ly Mao on the road in her village while she was returning home from visiting her relatives on May 2 this year. The villagers said that they did not understand why Chhuon Savan was arrested by police as Ly Mao is clearly the guilty party. Chhuon Savan was arrested by the police last week after Ly Mao's parents accused her of trying to kill their son. She is currently in detention and awaiting trial at Kampong Chhnang provincial court.
