“Village Woman Speaks Up against Police Abuse”

Sochua1 sent you a video: “Village Woman Speaks Up against Police Abuse”

YouTube


A village woman speaks of abuse inflicted on her husband by commune police a week ago. The village chief who took her husband to police rejected to file a report; his excuse: the husband was not beaten unconscious.

“what is the role of the armed forces and the police?” , she asks. ” To abuse the people?”

The village chief who was sitting next to me smelled of cheap wine and left after the villagers rejected his response.

This is life in Cambodia, in remote areas in particular. Village chiefs are former Khmer Rouges and selected by the party in power.

The woman filed a complaint with a local human rights organization a week ago. The day following my visit, the district police chief called the victim to settle the case at his home.

Not acceptable. The commune police must be sanctioned, as well as the village chief.
